In that moment

When lightning struck her heart cold

And the clouds parted from above

Her eyes grew wide

And she understood it all

As her body pulsated

With tiny bolts of electric charges

Ricocheting around her body like bullets that could never break free

The essence of life; her heart

Thudded ferociously against her ribcage

Blood flowed through her in streams

Red hot inside her but blue to the skin

And she could almost feel life evaporating

The atoms in her body vibrated with a sickening rhythm

As if caught forever in an ecstatic dance

And then no more

Everything slowed

Everything stopped

As she caught the world in her eyes

She understood what it meant to live

Only when she was to die
