It seeped in … crept into every pore of her being , like a virus invading a host and multiplying a thousand times , spreading … until it eventually filled her every waking moment . It was a mental , physical and emotional saturation , like a wet sponge , soaked and heavy , unable to suck up another drop of liquid .
The empty spaces of her existence were no more . It whispered to her from every corner , crevice , nook and cranny . She could not escape its pull , its power , its passion .
She surrendered … it was a welcome relief … allowed the madness to occupy every facet of her life .
