9. Safe Inside

Steaming magenta swirls collide with random teal epiphanies, and vivid turquoise explosions kiss a brilliant wilderness of tangerine sunsets created with blinking sugar dissolved in vibrating diamonds.  Erotic rainbows swim with galaxy-bright leaves, radiating perfect white pearls shrouded in curling thunder.  Yes, loud and encouraging, seductive.  Inviting magical hues never glimpsed by mere mortals dance to a high triumphant symphony of metallic flaunting perfection, caressing slivers of sanity.  Come here, come closer.  My rapturous bones turn inside out in splendid anticipation, ruby blood receptive like homecoming.  Seconds segue into years morph back into seconds again racing for infinity.  I can hear the hummingbird yearning for future  earthquakes, wings cracked then multiplied.  Stunning crystal castles bend and expand, with haunting electric waves of fierce sunshine and slick rocks enveloping me, while twirling angels of love cackle with corrupted innocence to hide their own true motives.  I see everyone I’ve ever loved and hated in this moment.  They reach, they laugh, they mock.  This glorious florescent vision melts and adheres to the shining glass droplets of withering sky.  I can’t breathe, I hate this, give me more.  Yes.           
The wicked drugs stain my brain, taunting and betraying me.  Where is my safe place now?

  6. Rachel, you can just come sit by the judges. We have 22 favorites this week, I think.

    Thanks for linking up! This is so descriptive and vivid. I love the line "I hate this, give me more." I think that about sums up the experience.

    Hope to see you back for the weekend challenge.

  7. Also, just wanted to let you know that your blog is really tricky to comment on. It doesn't accept our open id and often doesn't accept our first attempts when we log in with our google account. Once we jump through those hoops, the word verification gets us. I don't know if it's something you're aware of, so I thought I'd let you know. If you ever don't get a comment from us, it's not that we didn't try.

  8. I love "Erotic rainbows" and the contrast between loving and hating and wanting to stop and wanting more.
