I was remarkably calm as the storm raged above my head; the omnipresent dark grey cloud that had followed me for the past month had finally unleashed its fury. But I was prepared this time; I wouldn’t let it beat me. The familiar greeted me, it was everything I knew, but at the same time a stranger of the past. I resisted at first but he enticed me in, like a lost deer in the headlights, I obliged. Silent conviction empowering me, I took a sip of my comrade and sank into oblivion; calmly watching the cavernous walls rise and swallow me, returning me home. Although this time I wasn’t afraid, I greeted him like an old friend, no longer a stranger of the night. He cooed me to sleep in the way only he knew how. Disarmed by his charm, my bravado quickly melted away, along with my pride, as I sunk deeper into his arms. [Kim Shillam]
