Blackout

The lights go off, neurotransmitters failure. Someone around me shrieks ‘Watchout!’ Too late. Headfirst I go, diving in, a split second when nothing matters, Gravity defying, until someone gathers, me up. The blackouts, are my fits of euphoria, exhilarating, liberating, the sinking Concordia. Darkness often blinds, fears sublime. I fly and fall, body and all.
