Black clouds are rolling in.
I can see them in the distance.
They are large and dark and heavy.
I can feel the power of their contents from here.
They carry an invisible force. A powerful force.
They are closer than before. Moving.
Before I know it they are here.
Engulfing me in their overwhelming presence.
I try to escape.
As I scream I am silenced by their strength.
They hold me down. I am paralysed within.
I am functioning. I am paralysed within.
The black clouds twist and turn.
The storm is moving.
The clouds are moving. Paralysed.
Functioning. Black clouds roll away.
Never too far away. Until next time.
