This feeling occurs within me sometimes, and I can't quite understand why it's there or why it feels so powerful. I will be writing about it again.

 
This feeling is too profound to be simply described. This feeling left me feeling alone in the world, and different from everyone else. Slow, melancholy tunes play in the background of my mind, sounding like the mourning voices of angels. This music is calm, sad, and heavy with meaning. Time slows until I'm hardly exhaling my cigarette smoke, watching it slowly drift upwards in spirals. I never make a sudden movement, as though I'm underwater, where every moment is a lifetime. The energy of the life and objects around slowly wave about the room like a light breeze, and I remain ever still....ever so quiet. My breath slows, not to break this powerful silence on the outside, and to let the inside music tell it's story. The story has no words, only feeling, and when you try to put it into words...it contradicts itself. This feeling is the warmth of a fresh tear on your cheek, and the coldness it leaves when it falls. It's in the feeling of my hand caressing my face so slowly, I swear I can almost feel each skin cell, and the spaces in-between.  When I reach my hands out, I feel the invisible, and powerful connection we share with all that exists. The beat of the music matches my heart beat, and I stop. No longer in slow motion, but halted in a simple state of pure existence in which the inner feelings are not simple at all. This feeling is too profound to be simply described. The tune fades and I return to an existence of ego...until next time.
