Giving In

White.
So white that she was sure
If her eyes were closed
She would be seeing
Each capillary
In each eyelid distinctly.
She was overwhelmed
By the white in front,
And finally,
Succumbed to the cloying black
Behind her.
She stopped struggling.
White,
And then too white.
And then nothing.
Nothingness felt soothing
After the the struggle.
