Writing Challenge: How I Describe "Darkness"

One day, I opened my eyes and was surprised, even shocked. How could everything be so dark, total black, the darkest black, without color, not even a single dot of light. I tried to sit on my bed. My heart was full of anxiety and confusion.... "I still can't believe this. Am I blind now?". My two hands were shivering and still holding the blanket. I was sure that that was not a dream.

"Nooo!! Is this a warning? Or is this a punishment? What is a big fault that I have ever done? This is really uncomfortable! Noo...! I want to be able to see the world like yesterday. I want to see colors. I want to see greenery. I want to see the blue sky. I want to see the water flow. I want to see how handsome .......... I want to see the beauty of the world", I was looking for a glimmer of light, but failed.

"Now I know how the blinds feel. It's really scary...! They can't see anything! How could they survive in this world? I have never imagined that I would be ...... I cannot see the lights. Darkness will make me hard to survive. How would I walk, how would I eat, how would I dress, how would I survive without reading and write??" I almost cried, but something motivated me that everything happens for a reason.

I got out of my bed, took some steps toward the door of my room, and open it .......

It was at 4 a.m., and there was a power blackout. I then saw the glimmer of light in the distance. ^^ I felt so grateful that there was nothing worse happened. It was a scarily unforgettable moment. Since then, I appreciate more everything that I have. I promise to myself that I will keep them well.

This is a real story of me. ^^

Thank you very much for reading. "Have a wonderful day!" ^_^

Hello Mitraaaaan,

Ops! Sorry for yelling. D

How could you know a half of your life? Maybe you will live more than 150 years. ^^ *kidding, my friend. I'm just happy to see you again.

I'm sorry to hear about your sister in law. I absolutely agree with you. Health is really a precious wealth. Even sometimes, money can't buy health. Yup, let's pray for our good health.

Mitran, that's cool! I can't wait to see you active here again. ^_^ I'd like to help about speaking, I think we will help each other. :D , but, it's just about my time. :s:( I'd try my best.

So many thanks for your time and visit.

Thank you, bet.

Human likes complaining, but we can learn as we grow up, right? I'm learning not to complain too much, too. ^^

Have a great day, sis!

Dear Salma,

I'm happy to see you again. I hope everything is fine with you and your family.

Yup, I agree with that saying. I'm glad that it can inspire everyone. I was inspired too by that event.

Sis Salma, :D at first, I looked for Rosemary's comment, but didn't find it. It's Rose's nephew. Yep, that really reminds us about being grateful.

Thanks a lot for your precious time and visit.
