The best things in life are free. People waste so much money and effort on things that aren’t necessary. Take drugs for instance. Not literally, but as an example. People seem to predominantly use drugs for two reasons: to enhance life’s good qualities or to escape its bad ones. We all want to feel the best that we can for every single waking second of our lives. Escape the monotonous cycle of the nine-to-five hour working day. Debaucherous drug and or alcohol fuelled weekends (or weekdays, I’m not judging) can be turned into opportunistic circumstances to allow oneself to feel like they’re walking on sunbeams. Or however that song goes. But with substance use and abuse comes a wide range of undesirable side effects that can be unpleasant in regards to both the body and mind. Mostly body though, because, you know, the debilitating addictive nature of drugs and whatnot.
Wow that was sooooo great!
I really enjoyed the tension before the 'birth' as it's a really tactile and uncomfortable build up mimicking the narrator's internal pressure; and then the final release is so welcome after all the build up (I loved the list, it prolonged the relief) so much so that the next step is extra traumatic.
It made me actually panic sweat.
I'm looking forward to you posting more stuff!
