Limbo Effect of the Lost Mind

Constipation of the Mind 
no words coming out
blah blah blah 
blank page
whiten sepulcher
ink run dry 
damming up the stream 
the Beavers run and hide 
Zombie effect is me 
craving for brains, the life 
source to carry myself 
staple the bird down 
cage the beast 
silence the cries and needs 
emptiness and voided 
of any logic
                 reason, 
Nothing to say 
Nothing to offer 
feeling dead yet alive 
Limbo effect is me
floating, not falling 
not really going anywhere 
stay still 
Meditate on life 
Breath in 
sluuuuurp
Breath out 
wooooosh
actions require Mindfulness
Mindfulness requires process 
the Willpower of the soul 
to take charge and flap 
its celestial wings to the 
Open-embracing horizon 
closer and closer I fly 
wings melt and I do 
finally fall, and sensations 
return, I for that split 
second completely embraced 
by the warming light, totally 
consumed, Moth in the flame, then
with the feeling of rushing 
water and air, I return

    Wow Colin. I truly feel suspended in air, with nothing to do and nowhere to go. But just take it all in. Great poem.
