The thunder raged, filling the sky with lamplight and fire. But not a cloud passed over my heart. In a state of depthless resurrection when I travelled back to the human body, my skin defied to feel the textures of skins and the raised edges of sharp cliffs. That was the first sense that left me. I heard garbled names and a twenty thousand music notes all struck at the same time. The climax of feeling- a medley of what sound meant to humanity. And after that: a silence reserved to graves. That was the second sense that left me. The third was preceded by wine, a luxurious red flavour, procured in translation- French, of course. It was succeeded by a numbing- a lover shaking his head and walking away. My tongue went limp and my words swelled, waves and tides flowing to you-unheard. Taste. You never looked prettier than as a haze of colour and blur. I fancied you, till the last moment- a pink smile, ever so slightly fading out. The iris dimmed in realization of what left me. That was the fourth. My mom's lemon rice and your favourite perfume danced a duet, in celebration of a party I wasn't invited to. I smelled flowers- the water lilies Monet painted last. And then I was abandoned- mercilessly. The last sense that corrupted my soul was love, a deep breath and a plunge into the rusty, magical world. And death, my friend, I forgive all, but this I forget not.
