Vertigo by Abiola-Awe Oluwatise
This second, this minute.
Savour the smoothness of the air you inhale.
The fluid feel of the pen in your hand as your emotions melt to ink and stain the canvas of your notepad to create a masterpiece displayed only in the gallery of the corner of your bedroom.
The numerous calls your brain puts through to you embrace the ring of the migraine.
Puff a smoke with your spirit.
The melody of the air as it leaves your lungs, the medley made by instruments you never knew existed, every tune every perfectly timed beat of your weary heart,
Satisfy your thirst for a purpose.
Fuel your desire, Smile for the flash, embrace her, hold her hand, close your eyes, laugh, cry, die, enjoy the euphoria of being alive.
Spin life in her red dress, slow motion.
Waltz, two step.
Kiss her unrealistically soft lips.
Never let go.
