Electricity, warm water and haze

There was a moment today when I was home alone and heard the loud bang of something dropping downstairs that electricity ran through me so quickly that I couldn’t pinpoint the source and settled in my muscles, the inner tunnels of my ears and the back of my eyes bring everything – sight, sound, touch – into sharp focus. A wave of warm water coursed through me and the usual haze blanketed my senses once more when I found out it was just a bag dropping off a table.
