So the leaves are falling down

Written by Team Oasis at 21:38 27/10-2016

  Yesterday i walked to the edge of a cliff. Looking down i see a few goats eating dry bush. Its a peaceful, soothing sight. For a moment i'm relaxed, not as stressed as in the past few weeks.
  But then these images come back again. I see goats grazing and one bends over me. Another one looks at me like i'm an alien. Another quick look to the side and i see my bike lying on the ground. It is scratched and battered. A weird feeling of anxiety creeps over me. In a state of panic i stand up and walk towards my bike. I pick it up, but it is hard and then the pain starts to come.
  I look back to the goats and see a blood trace on the Spanish road, my blood. I feel more pain like being hit by a hammer. Then the vivid images blur again, like earlier today on the way down. Where did it go wrong i wonder? Was it the sheeps that made me hesitate, or am i traumatised, Or have i just lost it?
  Maybe it is time somebody else does the job rather than me...I'm not worth it.
