Taken by surprise

It’s been a few weeks since it first hit me: I felt giddy and almost desperate; nothing had ever made more sense, and it terrified me as it was something I had never, ever even considered. I had flash-forwards of what could be. I said then that it was reminiscent of the flashbacks in a film I’d seen: short snippets that puzzle and intrigue you, and standalone they made little to no sense. I get them time and again weeks later–it still terrifies me.

Some things take you by surprise.
