[247] A Calm Nightmare

Personalities mixing up to cause
rainbows in a storm
I touch one colour to really want another
Never understanding a disguise entirely
I borrow another to just carry on looking up

The afterglow of constellations in your eyes
carry themselves into my emotional identity
I feel half of what you felt
Half of what there is to feel
Attention deficit kicks in and
I feel the absence of any feeling

I bear a fraction of what I’ve learned
Brooding devastation of thought
Sitting down mindfully, to only fail
I realise it’s a mind full of conspiracy
to numb any stimuli to the violence outside

  1. Be careful… don’t let the world numb you! Don’t let it cause you not to feel! Find the beauty. It’s there. Carry on – looking up! Focus on what you WANT to see and feel!
