That’s what I imagine when my mind shuts down,
a cold reality, that is caustic to the touch,
unable to move,
frozen yet hot with immediate passion.
I stand here
together with my family
just how I ever made it this far
beckon me, and tell me they’ll help me
sitting in the comfort of my threshold
the place where I seek solace
my mind is reeling
unable to track a single notion
further than a couple of minutes.
My greatest fear,
might be that state of mind
carries me out into my community
and those around me that I don’t care about
Imagine the steam that surrounds my
every thought – ruthless and course
cold as my … save this wrenching heart.
