She woke in the midst of a vanishing darkness to feel but the irresistible pull of the dark entity like an incubus upon her womb it crushed her soul with the power of infinity. Galaxies gathered upon her breast chasing the breath from the gentle soul as she held her arms in a plea for another moment to contemplate her fancies. The body forced onto the frigid slab she sensed the icy embrace journey through her veins child yet she wondered why it was so that in a moment her dust would sink into oblivion. She attempted a final struggle with fate swallowed by a vertiginous vacuum but soon silence wrapped her little heart and I could converse with her no more.
