Somedays I feel every emotion there ever was
Beating in my chest
Pumping in my veins.
Somedays I don’t feel anything at all.
The numbness closes in
Water fills my lungs
I’ve forgotten how to breath
I’ve forgotten to swim.
Some mornings my tongue becomes possessed
Endless ideas cascade out of me,
Millions of thoughts dance in my head.
Some afternoons my mouth is glued shut
And the giant block of ice sitting on my chest
Won’t let me think a single thought.
The sun rises high over my wavering window
Lights shines through and the ice begins to melt
A hummingbird heart replaces the frozen emptiness
And I begin to swim.
Darkness glooms around every corner
And quickly drags me in
There is no moon to guide me
And I begin to sink.
Fearless free spirit climbing towards the heavens
Sinking siren trapped in the abyss.
