In the blink of an eye...


…as slowly moving curtain my eyelids fell…
Green circles floated before eyes. It felt as something distinct, new.
Air filled with lilac scent and distant music. Sullen thoughts gracefully settled down…
Swaying thin voice encouragingly repeated: “You can do it. You can do it…”
Hands found plastic rounded surface…
Blink! Blink! - as if a puppeteer pulled the string.

The honked car behind me sounded very irrationally…

  10. ...been there...most of the time these days... the drugs holds responsible more than the amount of work i needed to go through... my skin allergies demand for continuous medication & treatment & quite an extended time patronizing drugs.... smiles...
