Can you feel the everlasting mutation? I often forget that it's even happening. But now, calmly acknowledging it, I allow the sensation to take over me. There’s a multitude of biochemical transformations, continuously taking place deep beyond the surface of the skin. Growth, rebirth and reconstruction. This is a mechanism of flux. The laws of nature gradually break apart. We’re starting to lose gravity. Our bodies transcend. A shattering force blowing through this dissonant present. On the horizon– a new world, a new order. I can feel a burning sensation inside of me. Desire. I feel like I’m about to burst into flames. I can’t stop thinking of you. You kiss me as we begin to undress. The gentle sensation of your lips. I embrace the sweet taste of your sweat covered skin. A tight grip, hands on hips – you slide inside. Breaching the border. Liquid particles scatter – finding shelter in the complex vortex of these internal networks. Pulling out – leaving a trace of yourself within. Laying there – in a state that feels like complete tranquillity. Your body next to mine, radiating. I feel a slowly fading desire. Transformation. A mutation of feelings.
