I Continue

The sharp edges of the rocks tear into my naked flesh.
The wind hisses around my body
I continue
I am unable to relent.
Something is calling me, trying to lure me.
I continue
I am transfixed
Unable to look away
I continue
I feel the sting of the cold water on my skin
Pushing through
I continue
Slippery dark sandstone beneath my feet now
Balance unraveled
I continue
I pull myself upwards onto the banks
Dead crunchy leaves crackle underfoot.
I continue
The force to strong
Deeper I travel

Very evocative. Puts me in mind of so many mysterious half-memories.
