backward thoughts: electric

by mandaceehb


I experienced it today- that elusive invincibility, lurking in the shadows of pure recklessness and spontaneity, the feeling of having nothing to lose together in a foreign land; recognising danger but knowing we were still tethered (what’s the worst that can happen?), getting lost, finding ourselves by unimaginable chance. Screaming, shouting, hugging, no restraint, that final burst across the road and the energy and feeling of magic that didn’t die long afterward, embedded like threads running through veins that couldn’t so easily disintegrate, ecstasy, complete wondrous disbelief with almost strangers now bright eyed and warmer with shared moments.
