It’s the infinite moment. When you know you’ve made a mistake, and all you want to do is take it back. But you can’t. The damage is done.
………….The infinite moment. It’s disbelief at first. Acceptance slowly washes over you like a rising tide, and as it rises, it gets harder to breathe. You feel like your drowning, but there’s no panic.

The angel said to him, “Come join me in the land above the sky.” For once, he felt warm; for once, he felt safe; for once, he felt happy. But then in an instant, her words melted away, and he watched as her image faded into the shadows of his mind. When he awoke, he felt lost, cold, and alone.
