Thin lines

I swear its all a trick.

I swear they all know. Writing down chaotic ribbons and giggling behind cupped palms.

Batted lashes ensnare foolish suitors-to-be.

Doorjambs prove excellent buffers for this blaring megaphone.

Paper hammers shrivel. Watery screwdrivers collapse.

Killswitch lost in a cilian forest.

Are you lost? I'm sorry. My map's made of cheese.

Everyone gets a laugh. Rolling eyes squeak.

A jarring noise to say the least.

Awaken from the reverie. Dream within a dream.

I swear it's all a lie. I swear they're all amused.

B's and E's disintegrate. Shaking heads and rolling R's.

Bajar.

Holographic androids round the corner and disappear in a flash and golden sparkle.

Two-way mirrors an inch away. Bloody knuckles.

I find a fellow labyrinthian traveller. I swear they love the cold.

But are they a second fold?

I swear I swear I swear.

But the curses hold no weight.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

bloodstreams clear. I swear.

That wasn't aA loss that was a wild ride! I got there was paranoia etc... I just enjoyed the build up to fast paced ending left me a little disorientated, an effective write is a highly successful thing I'd consider it a big win sir!

The Cilian Forest

I am lost in the cila like forest - nice image, all of them are nice images to fall into and be lost, walk around inside and take in the view. Very surreal applications, very mind threads linked nice - Whoof! The lighted fire flares and goes poof!
