The Other Way Round

Right, so let's pretend, just for a minute, that you are not here and this isn't happening. You are not you and here is somewhere else. Close those beautiful eyes of yours and imagine a world where everything is as it's supposed to be. No ifs, no buts. Feel the rush of wind on your skin as you plunge yourself into this delightful microcosm of impetuous infinity. Here, you can be whatever your heart tells you to be, because in a game of heart-brain-scissors, heart beats brain every single time. Here, you don't have to make up a lie just so you can feel good with yourself, because truth of the matter is, you won't need to.

In this surreal existence, the sun goes up at dusk, and birds and fish tease each other somewhere in between the sky and sea. Humans, accompanied by the harmonious symphony of claps, cheers and encores, make passionate love in the middle of a crowded street. God is your next door neighbour, on whom you can spy through those miniature binoculars, courtesy of that overrated museum downtown. Falling in love is relatively easy over here because trust issues do not exist and do not intend to. Which is why people are happy throughout most of the day and not the other way round. Dreams are unnecessary. Here, you can do whatever you want, go wherever you please, and you won't be judged for it. Here, life and death do not need to be constantly defined. Because life and death are interchangeable. You can die and wake up whenever you want.

But the minute's over now. You are here and this is happening. You are you and here is not somewhere else. Here is this. Here is now. Here is where everything is not as it's supposed to be.
