You can feel what its about to happen.
The all too familier feeling of sleeping slowly.
The world becomes louder.
Sleep becomes a labour.
Breathing becomes a skill to learn.
So you sit, not defeated, merely ready.
Waiting for the tide to come in.

If you feel yourself going into a mental healh crisis, you are not alone. Here are some numbers that might help if you're in the UK:
The Samaritans - 116123
Sos silence of suicide - 0300 1020 505
