I think I’ve decided to be the maker of my own tides.
To watch the details most people miss.
The little things in life
Make life much easier
When you look at a new perspective
Of something you see everyday.
Day in.   Day out.   Day in.   Day out.    Stop.
I am who I am.
Rain is wet and energizing when it falls
and I get caught in a swirl of beauty and electricity.
A flash and a growl.
I missed you, did you miss me too?
Sparks.
Darkness sets the mood while the sea plays music
Giving it the final touch.
I find myself on a cliff.
Ready to jump.    Ready to gaze.
Most have a symbiotic relationship with life.
I have a parasite.
Flowers.
As bright as bouquets.
A tree sprawls out over my front porch
A creature.
Looms in the darkness.
Looking   Searching   Watching
in the depths
for the right time to strike
in the corner of your mind
you lose yourself in a black hole.
It swallows you up.
Twirls you.              Spinning.
Like a little girl with her yellow princess hat and wand.
Twirling.                 Spinning.
Happy and ignorant.
Dizzy.                       Boom.
She hit hard.
Eyes spinning         Head spinning          Brain spinning
Back to reality.
Ut-oh        Panic attack.
Help! They’re coming for me.
It’s coming for me.
The world has come to an end.
Panic.
Fear.
Crying droplets of electromagnetism.
It sounds so lovely when you say it like that.
Self soothing is the recommended treatment.
All hope is lost.
I rock myself slowly as I silently crawl inside myself only hoping to emerge
A butterfly.

Well done sister poet..Inspired...
Start of a poemdo you
feel that
more
importantly
do you
hear it
the pain
pooling
in
puddles
until
finally
emerging
as a
crystalizing
chrysalis
of
creativity
ready
to be
sliced
and
diced
for our
pleasure
split up
and
spread out
for the
manic
mesmerized
masses
smilling
in
bitter
sweet
agony
while
the band
plays
on
and
on
and
on...
