When was the moment it stopped? Quietly, it detached itself from you and crept away into the night. Perhaps when you were asleep but maybe not, because when we wake up, reality has a way of entering our lives with unfiltered truth.
The advantage for me is that I know, or know that I once did. For a brief moment of time, I was experiencing the most ideal or worlds that there is, or that I perceive to be. And then, the fall left me staggering, maybe that was bound to happen.
And now it’s the redemption, this one for me. This one to climb this magical ladder so well grounded in reality but also so high up that each step holds its own wonder, and each level, whether higher or lower, resonates truth.
