To find new place to wonder and hide

My mind is racing 
Racing around it won’t stop 
Cant stop 
I have to write I can feel the words pressing agents my brain
Yet when I lay pen to paper the words don’t want to come out

They go running 
Hiding a child caught up in childhood games….

Come out come out were ever you are?....

I can’t sleep my mind wont shut off
So I smock to easy the fear that keeps my words from sneaking out
Yet it just makes my eyes itch and my tong turn cotton
So I’m stuck with my head between my knees trying to rock away the 
Nashua that is my stomach 

The words are just a bluer my hand can’t keep up
They don’t even know were the paper starts
So I’m sitting curled up while the world spins around me
Like when I was a kid at the park playing with the Worley-winds

Around and around 
Yet it is not the world around me that is spinning
It is the world with in my head
A land I didn’t even know about

This must be the place were Eleanor resides at
This must be why everything is a bluer
I have to be reborn
So to say
For am I not a fetus

The sky is gray
I can see it now as clear as day
That hazy gray of rain
Yet now I must think were is it that I lay?

A bead perhaps? Beneath sky of gray That can’t be right Yet For Eleanor Perhaps that is the best part Sitting up I see fog hugging low to the trees But not Tree trees More like Dr. Seuss trees Could it be? Yes, yes it seems I see clearly On my feet For this was a bead! Time to explore this new place I am in So I must abide you faire well And encourage that you take time To look for new place with in your mind as well
