Triple layered Inception- You. Me. Us.
5th April, 2020. 20:40 IST.
I was half past dead. But Her face was not letting me touch the depths of my sleep. It kept flashing on to my left eye, slowly but steadily moving its pace and engulfing my right, completely. That Face. An urge to open my eyes immediately gushed through the eyeballs. I could clearly trace this whole journey, by the time her face hit like a bullet right through my brain. My eyes reluctantly came to an open position.
Boldly colored abstract rays were sprouting out from the four ceiling corners and were circling all around me. The zoom-in transition of these bright rays met at a point and took a massive blast creating infinite dots of different colors.
"Wait. A rainbow shower?" I asked to myself.
"You want to see Her now, don't you?"- a very familiar voice echoed.
"Who are you and how do you feel me?"
No answer from the familiar voice.
Ignore this thought. Ignore. Ignore the face. The echoes. The rays. Its a magic trick. Ignore. Just ignore. But, bouncing back to the horizon of randomness was not that easy of a task.
"How about a ride to The Paradise?"- That voice.
Not again. The purest state of hallucination, I was in. I could totally feel it.
"I ain't want no Paradise, my Man. Now, Who are you?"
No answer from the familiar voice.
A hand as strong and real as mine, pulled me inside to the center ray point, which shaped into a perfectly constructed rainbow tunnel. The color boxes were of equal dimensions- 3 square inches each in measurement. Bundling up the whole tunnel was a fluorescent rope, dangling from the misty tops, creating a sway motion. I was on the left corner of the tunnel, awing its perfection.
She stood there on the farthest right corner. Her hair slowly danced to the tunes of the wind. Those springs in the ends- Man, an absolute killer. I was less than an inch close to her hair and now they were brushing my eyelashes, swiftly. The tunnel took a shift and landed in a solid surface with a jerk, taking her balance almost completely.
I hate to lie, Man. I almost saw death in my eyes when she was about to fall out. I reached out and lifted her back to the tunnel, towards my bosom. And there, she stood next to me, like a dashing Queen who suits a humble King. Love for the first time, I felt. Yes. Love. Each of my cells inside, beaming with Love. Total bliss.
Three concentric wooden doors opened simultaneously and we stepped out.
The Grand Ballroom. Plush ceiling. Grandeur in walls. Greek statues. Italian granite filled the floor. She was dressed in a dark teal gown. An Angel minus the wings. A simple second shade of grey blazers, made me look equally handsome. Or at least, I assumed so. Audience in jet black tuxedos were present. Bells. Celebrations. Loud bursts of laughs. Paparazzi. The whole place was gleaming and shattering with Love and Happiness.
(Deep silence. Mute)
"I now pronounce you both, Man and Wife"- The Pope declared.
We kissed. For Eternity. Love sprang all over us. Honey waffle showers. Nothing better could've happened to us than this.
"Will you dance with me?"- She asked.
"Fuck yes, my Lady. I will never let you dance with another Man"- I held her by her hips. Damn, The Himalayas and The Alps wouldn't have seen such curves.
For what seemed like a brief while, we waltzed through the entire church for Beethoven's- Fur Elise.
(Perfect cocaine white grains fill the eyesight. Fade out)
I was lying down like an aimless log, in the trance of my "just had" dream. Or wait, was it a dream? While my mind was trying to deconstruct what it just experienced, I felt a soothing hand on my right shoulder.
"No, my Man. Dreams come true at times, right?"- She did her signature wink, as perfect as ever, lying next to me. And there I was gone. Destroyed. To a zillion pieces. For her single wink. She then took me by her arms. Ran her hands through my hair.
Girl, how much I'm in love with you.
A ring beaming with pink Amethyst crystal created a beautiful aura around the room for a fifteen centimeter circumference, reflecting a clear Metatron's cube on the four walls.
"Will you marry me?"- she blushed.
God. She's unbelievable.
"Why not? I'm afraid it's gonna be right fuckin now"- I said, taking her by my arms.
Them concentric rays bloomed again inside the room for one last time. Every little thing was fading off, right in front of my eyes. The rainbow tunnel. The Perfect shaped three inch squares. The fluorescent rope. Her hair. My eyelashes. They were all fading off. Just to make me realize that this dream inside a dream is not as sweet as the reality. And every one of them elements met at the same center ray point.
"You sure did enjoy the ride, didn't you?"- That voice again. That familiar voice.
"Fuck yes, Nigga. Now show yourself. Please."- I begged.
"I'm YOU"- the voice faded. Slowly. Like a dead snail.
I found myself sitting in front of a tall sized Belgian Mirror. She was sitting right next to me. As glowing as ever.
"I'll never let go of you, My Love. Never"- I said to myself.
