Darkness

I was falling
falling in darkness
falling in slow motion
there was utter loneliness
nothing but the darkest dark
darkness and cold
and I was falling 
It may have been a nightmare
I don't know
there was
no end to the fall
to the darkness
it could have been a few moments
but I felt that I had been falling
all my life
blackness was all I could see
There was nothing before that
I felt that there would be nothing after
Maybe this is what death is like
Maybe.

Memories of Snow

Me a little girl of seven
My little brother three and a half
sitting on two small chairs by the window
looking up to the sky
It's snowing.
we stare and stare
until we feel we are going up
up up into the white sky.
the snow is falling
we are rising
we are on our way
to a distant planet.
we are giddy 
holding hands 
but we won't stop staring
we must have known
that if we stop our gaze
we will fall down
down to earth.
holding hands happy
staring at the snowing sky.
