Thank you for sharing another 8sunday with me! This is a continuation from last week’s post (check it out here, or the rest of my posts here). To meet some new authors, read some great writing, or join in the 8-sentence fun, stop by at Weekend Writing Warriors!
I am not me–I am someone else, no one. A hundred different lifetimes, worlds—all at once, until it feels this pathetic human body is going to explode.
Abruptly, it stops.
The Shadow lowers me to the ground–I clench fistfuls of grass in my hands, to reassure myself that this is real; Images flicker across my vision, my body quivering with the power of them, but they are fading.
I can still feel myself, tainted; shadows pound through my heart, course through my veins–The visions have taken root in some unnamed part of me, the shards bound together in a knot.
I can feel it, inside–something strange, unnamable, powerful.
Like a second heartbeat, beating beneath my own–A scattered, fragmented pulse I can’t quite make sense of, Thud-thud, thud.
My eyes open.
Hope you enjoyed! A few more snippets in this series, then I’ll have to decide what to share next. Thank you for stopping by, looking forward to all the posts this week. Happy 8sunday 🙂
