Awakening

Awakening

Walking on a path
Through a dense forest
Tall, hanging trees
Forming arches above me
Vines hanging down
Wildlife roaming around
Plants in full bloom
Flowers of all colors
They guide me
Down this lonely road
I reach a clearing
An altar in the center
A five-pointed star drawn in chalk
A circle drawn
Glowing bright white
Lying at the base of the altar
There she was
Beautiful, dark hair flowing
Across her skin
Kneel before her
Pray to the Pantheon
Leave a bouquet and stone
Lay my hands down
Upon her motionless body
Tears
Welling up
The white glow dulls
Green spreading throughout
My eyes burst open
Hands spread wide, to the heavens
Energy coursing through my blood
Suddenly
Darkness
I lie motionless
Eyes still open
Still seeing
She rises, and looks down at me
With her barely open eyes
A smile
Bright white light
Awakening
