Taking my mind

off my mind

for a second.

Trying to breathe

with these trees

in their vestments

of deep green

and relieve

this anxious

feeling which keeps

trying to haunt me.

 

I’m feeling thin,

two dimensional.

Just a shade

fading quickly

in the sunlight.

I’ve been away.

Not feeling

quite myself today,

so I’m going in

on everything,

because time

is just a question

of life.

 

Taking my mind

off my mind

for a second.

Opening me,

my heartfelt beliefs,

everything is examined

and throw away

the detritus

that has drifted in.

 

Make whole

once more

this living being.

Take control,

instead

of letting everything

fall into the

inevitable

disrepair.

 

Not standing still,

but not in the running,

coming for the kill.

So exuberant

the feeling

of being clean.

So exultant

the feeling

of being free.

 

Taking my mind

off my mind

for a second.

Dwelling in the interlude

instead

of this constant confusion.
