The clouds are dripping with sunsets and liquid glitter
My mind trips;
And decides to go on an astral trip through time
I can see the energy floating around me.
It’s a little dark here.
Light pours like Sunshine through a window in space
And I glimpse another me.
She looks quite eccentric, I won’t lie.
Middle school me would be proud if she astral projected herself into another universe.
She wears smudged eyeliner and platform boots and I can see at least fifteen tattoos as she smiles at me and suddenly, I’m glimpsing into another window.
This one’s a little different than the last.
I can see the galaxy I used to dream of,
I don’t think this is real
But then again as I look into the eyes of a wallflower
I decide reality doesn’t matter.
Before I gather up the courage to brush my eyes against his cheek
The window switches again.
I can see the present me.
I don’t quite like her.
She’s smiling sadly at me
I realise she wants me to love her as much as I loved the wallflower and the eccentric woman.
Maybe I should?
I’m back. My body is screaming as the million tiny atoms try to rearrange themselves back to their normal state;
And I smile.
I could get used to this
