“Calm the winds of your thoughts, and there will be no waves on the ocean of your mind.”
Surrounded by clouds of grey, as tranquility pierced darkness, as she dipped into the ocean of serenity and she sat there amongst many, Not having much to say, she just observed everyone go delirious.
Haltingly she inhaled the herb. Loud noises and slow music filled her ears. It was just a few of them, then why was it so loud? Why on earth was everyone yelling? She wanted to tell them to shut up. They would wake the neighbors at this atypical hour. But her mouth was dry. She couldn’t do much right now. She instead decided to shut her eyes and enjoy every bit of what was happening to her now. The paper burnt smoothly. Every drag bought with it a new color ; a new feeling.
The first time she had let it into her, she didn’t know what was happening to her. She wanted to snap out then, unable to figure out where she had travelled. It had freaked her out. She thought she was in a dream. A dream that was going to last for so long that she would forget to wake up.
And today she wished she never woke up after all. And now suddenly it was the best feeling ever. A trance she wanted to live in.Her legs were dead, her body was numb and she was floating. Like a bird in the sky. She flew and flew, over seas of emotions, rivers of happiness and roads of regrets. She had seen it all, she had thought. But from where she stood now, she had so much left to walk.
Her eyes lay shut for some more time and the breeze from the window made her feet cold. Nevertheless her hypnotized mind ignored everything corporeal. It was just she and her thoughts. So mystical. She wandered through the land of esoteric and the ocean of understanding that was still like never before.Waves didn’t interrupt its course tonight. She dragged Puff after puff of that white widow kind into her body. Eirene had come visiting her tonight. She belonged somewhere else she knew. As she lay there thinking, she wrote stories in her head. She composed tunes and she re read her life. More alert than ever she jumped at every possible odd sound. But she let her eyes be shut.
It was gravity acting against her.
And slowly she was pulled into a deep sleep. Only to get up the next morning unable to remember how she fell asleep in the first place.
