Glittering, shining, a promise, a hope
The sunlight of a new dawn, new
day, new startings
Bathing me in light, in serenity,
Washing and cleaning of all contaminants,
of all pollutants.
Sterilized, sanitized from the worries
from the approaching labours of
today and the never-ending pains of
Dancing in every particle of my
Breathing, absolving, consuming
For mere seconds lasting eons.
A living entity, near physical form,
unbound by states of matter,
In a fluid, a solid, a gaseous state.
Unrestricted. Free from the chains
Zealously broken from the strings
And released from the commitments
A sweet escape, a needed escapade.
Drenched in eccentric heartbeats
and liberated smiles.
Eliciting laughs as sudden as the
falling pearls of a broken necklace.
Rhythmic and successive, but oh so
short. Never enough.
Scattering across the tangible and
intangible portions of my being
Across my momentary existence.
Swirling into my head with a deluge
Clouding all semblance of reason,
all assortment of thought.
Encaged in the pleasure of a temporary
break…some relief…a little
An invitation to the worn soul for a
true smile among millions faked.
A sip of life, a breath of verve signaling
sanity, normalcy, consciousness.
Just a sip, a taste, a breath. No more.
Before I, once again, put the vial of
routine to my lips
And consume liquefied reality. Unwillingly.
Before I continue to follow the
shabby trails of custom, convention,
Before I religiously maintain all the
infectants of my nature, my essence.
So now I wait. Expectantly. Anxiously.
For that next minute of sunshine to
pull me to the surface.
To bring me to life once again and
inculcate in me…some feeling!
