A calm numbness overcomes me.
My muscles relax.
My brain slows.
I’m just floating.
My thoughts have been running a marathon in my head.
My eyes have been cast down and I stand still staring off into the distance.
I just want to get through this.
I can’t stand my own self anymore.
All I want to do is get lost in a realm of sleep and dreams.
Create my own world and wander through the roads that wind around in my head.
I’m empty and my hand is searching for something.
So instead my hand finds a pen and I write til’ my fingertips cramp.
A blank look on my face I just want to slip away for awhile.
But people keep tugging on me keeping me here.
Just let me be.
