Jolt, A Haiku

My heart stops beating
Paddles jolt me back to life
Beep, beep, beep, beep, beep. 🙂

Speaking of being jolted, when I am jolted out of sleep I often experience this vibrational sensation that is really hard to explain and will sound crazy. But have you ever felt like you are vibrating or oscillating at a really high frequency inside your body? It’s not dizzying like vertigo. You don’t feel like you are spinning. You may feel like your bed is shaking, but you see that it’s not. You may think it’s your heart racing, but when you feel your pulse, it’s slow and steady. You may think your body is trembling, but you see no tremors in your hand or any other movement in your body. This strange vibrational sensation seems to be completely mental, but it feels real. It doesn’t last more than a minute or two, especially once you get up and start moving. So, I Googled this, and found I’m not alone. Many people have experienced this. Nobody really knows what it is or what causes it. I haven’t found a medical explanation for it. So, for now, I’ll just call it my “good vibrations.”
