TonightIt was like reality had achieved a dreamlike quality. My imagination, far too real. Time and all its physical dimensions had faded. Its passage was all in my head. I was stranded in this timeless space. Tonight, the universe had stopped expanding. It was just me and this one moment I was existing in. Of my existence I was certain for my thoughts evidenced the adrenaline coursing through my spirit. This grey smoke blackening my lungs was strengthening my soul in ways I couldn’t fathom. My words and thoughts were married together in a union blessed by the heavens. I spent the night looking down at my small baby hands. In those lines I could see a lifetime spent coursing through the wise words of this nation. My homelessness had died as I breathed in the child of this soil. I was letting life in and it changed me tonight. Tonight, time had stopped. Its shock still moments had made me eternal.
