Welcome back

Slipping below the water line, she relishes the silence
A silence punctuated by life around her, sounds of reality
That has come back  and the blackout fades away
 
A week of hiatus, of dread and drought, normal service temporarily suspended
“We apologise for the delay on the Mental Health Line. This is due to unforseen circumstances
Please make alternative travel arrangements if your journey to the mentalist is urgent
And at all times, please keep all baggage with you and any sensitivity well concealed.”
 
A flicker of light, of recognition of his smile, of her life returning
As she surfaces from the still silence, water surrounding her tired form
Recognition that she is home from her madness.
A madness that lies in the deep and rumbling waters of her soul
