I am waiting…
Should I take that leap of faith
or push the panic button?
I am pretty sure if I choose the latter
no one will even notice.
Stress has me in a suffocating breathing pattern,
taking shallow breaths in an endless polluted sky.
I am in a pool of people also searching to escape,
arms flapping to keep from going under again.
Drowing, yet not being quite sure
I want a lifeline tossed my way.
Darkness doesn’t always show up at night,
it may appear in broad daylight,
in nightmares that seem more real than reality.
What year is it? Somehow it doesn’t seem to matter.
Pain is just another symptom of fear
in a lopsided life that balance eludes.
