The Lady of the Gallows

I looked up above and tried picturing the sky, but alas, there was nothing to see. As I walked slowly along the long corridor, I suddenly felt like I was a prisoner making his way towards the gallows. The passage of time never felt this slow, and the things that have been happening around me were starting to feel like replays of an old life. I closed my eyes, breathed deeply, and then sighed.  I slowly opened my eyes,  but alas, my surroundings disappointingly remained the same. It didn’t really come as a surprise, but apparently I was still stuck in a gloomy reality.

Then suddenly, from out of nowhere, an apparition appeared before me. The maiden’s face was familiar, for it had been stuck in my memory the very first time I laid my eyes on her. Our eyes met, and the noise of the outside world fell silent. My mind had gone blank, and I had lost track of the time. No words were exchanged, only smiles. It was as if at that moment, it was the only thing that was worth doing.

As suddenly as she appeared, so did she suddenly fade from view. And just like that, I was now back in the present, highly amused at the laughable situation I had found myself in just a few seconds earlier.

 
Yeah she caught my eye
As we walked on by
She could see from my face that I was
Flying high
