I’m alone in the wilderness, struggling through the trees that catch me as I run, the branches scratching and screeching as they touch my skin, the night howls in pain and I fall to the ground.
Afraid to move, afraid to breathe, trapped by the woods that surround me and the endless darkness.
Then, suddenly, I’m not alone, you take my hand and everything changes. It’s not so dark, the trees are a welcome home and they shelter me from the harsh realities of the earth.
The leaves are green and lush, they sparkle in the sun with the droplets of rain from the times before.
The only difference is you.
