The Bottomless Pit

The place was like a very deep dark hole
where there was no light
and it seemed that in every direction
I tried to go only ended up
being deeper and further down
in a space where no walls existed
because they would need
a supporting foundation
but here in infinite darkness
there was no enclosure
in what seemed to be
a surreal dreamscape
within my mind
or wherever then
I might have been
into which I just kept
falling further down
or so it evidently seemed
as I tried to gather
some fortitude to pray
with whatever means or
urgency I could summon
to the God of my soul
for Him to save me
from this bottomless pit
and dark nothingness
in which I was falling
like stepping off a cliff
on a high mountain
to some valley below
that you couldn't see
or what could've been
the edge of the world
and it was difficult
to hold onto my breath
and soul that were
being left behind;
a strong unmistakable
feeling and sensation
coming from inside
like I was being
wrenched out of
my physical body....
then suddenly I awoke
with my heart pounding
very loudly which I
could hear and feel
within the cavity of my chest
between gasps of breath
and those tears that were
rolling down my cheeks
as I realized that
I had been saved
from the depths of
that stark oblivion
and utter blackness
for my prayers
had been answered
and I just laid there
in my bed exhausted
while being thankful
with thoughts of gratitude
that I could see where I was
and that I was still alive
in one piece with the
light coming through
my bedroom window
from a new day's sun.
