An Average Friday Night

From Hysteria By GIRLONFILM Issue 03 "THE SLEAZE".


Written By: Sosana Shelah



You look down at the dark purple lipstick stain left on the shot glass; gripping your eyes shut as hard as you possibly can; gulping down what feels like fire.


You feel a wet sensation on your chest from spilling cheap vodka on your black and cream fishnet dress.


Capsules and alcohol is a disaster combination you know will hurt your head and your skin the morning after; your impulsiveness takes over along with uppers you forced up your nose, leaving a sharp burning in your left nostril.


Your hand reaches for the cold golden door knob and your head lifts upward making you almost fall and lay on the uneven concrete flooring.


You walk down the hall, barely conscious of your actions, getting lost staring at red lights blanketing over the walls and the chaotic substance-abused faces of strangers who you imagine are feeling the same way you do.


The music is slowed and you effortlessly let your heavy head fall back.


You are comforted knowing that no one here will remember how you are looking in this moment as your arms lift following your hands waving slowly to the distorted beats only you can hear.


You trace the outline of your curves, from your head to your hips, and your full lips fold before letting a smile take over your flushed face.


For just a few moments the feeling of being careless takes over and you visualize that you are the only one in this packed room of sweaty dancing figures....

For just a few moments the feeling of being careless takes over and you visualize that you are the only one in this packed room of sweaty dancing figures....


"It's you!" is shouted from just a few feet away from me.


My head feels as if it is moving faster than it is in actuality as my eyes pace around the hot crowd.
