Finally.
?It was like a floodgate opening.
?So slow.
?I consumed it so fast.
?Too fast.
?The rumbling was felt underneath my feet for hours.
?He opened the door.
?I never saw it coming. ?
I was too slow.
?The water swam into my ears.
?Flooded my eyes.
?It was warm.
?By the time it reached my stomach it was boiling.
?It was on fire through my veins. 
?It stopped my heart in seconds.
?I floated gently.
?Slow.
?He was graceful.
?Few words.
?Fast words.
He smiled.
?I floated.
?Slow.
?Fast.
?Boiling.
Fire.
Finally. ?
