disconnected

I am here but not here unfocused in this world full of people and noise I am here but not here bubble-wrapped among crowds separate alone I am here but not here a puppet pretending to be human yet vacant

maelstrom

in this maelstrom I flounder everything spins nothing will hold still moons become blue moons unexpected endocrine insanity and the tiredness drags at me like claws pulling at my flesh I try to hold on to you but you’re behind glass swirling in a maelstrom of your own and I’m making it worse

Sitting alone

I feel a strange contentment Sitting here alone I wonder why it doesn’t Always feel this way What is it in me that Craves company one day Then revels in solitude the next?

Moment

A moment of pure panic Breath comes fast Tears push against closed lids Hands shake I find myself rocking gently As the sobs come Holding myself tightly And trying to conjure up a comforting voice Hush now, hush now Everything’s going to be alright

No Thing

worthless  worth less  than nothing a walking shadow  unseen devoid of value  like a currency  where you need a billion notes  to buy a can of coke nothing  no thing  not even a thing grabbing at scraps begging for leftovers  and nobody cares
