Time Travel

I tried to close my eyes. I knew my time had finally come…. But suddenly, a blinding flash, an intense surge of white light, pounded on my retina. Even if I knew there was no use protecting my eyes, I couldn’t resist myself from opening them. It was reflexive… A force was there too. It was trying to close them. But then there was the flashing light. It was excruciating…

And all of a sudden, it was peace. A feeling of intense stillness. I thought I was speeding up. I thought I was leaving myself. Swimming in that intense albumen ether, I thought I was I on my way to God. I knew, I was dying, finally….

…I saw a baby. He was playing with ‘me’. Not actually me. It was the other me. The older ‘me’…

…I saw a girl. My girl-friend actually. There was ‘me’ as well. But I knew it was the past. I knew she would betray ‘me’ the very next day….

…I saw a lady. She was playing with the baby I had seen before. Something was familiar about her….

…I saw ‘myself’. Wearing a black shirt…standing, on the top of a building. I knew what ‘I’ was about to do: I was going to, jump from the building…

But then the sensation took a reverse turn. A feeling of intense chaos. I thought I was speeding down. I thought I was approaching myself. And then I took a struggling breath. Clots of blood seeped into my nose. I sneezed and coughed horrendously. It was a near death experience…..

I knew who have saved me. It was me… I had, traveled through time…
