Physicality

Physicality

A Poem by Isabel
"

My mind wanders.

"

Clouds drifting over power lines.

They're embodied and electrified.

I can't help what goes on in my mind.

I just wanna stay inside.

 

I'd rather drown underground, where I can lose myself in peace.

 

I am alive because I have died.

More than once, like a thousand times.

Catch my tears. They're cold as ice.

Feel no fear, coming up with beautiful lies.

 

The white noise pushes out everything we talked about

And I don't wanna hear any other sound.

 

Surfing the black waves of my mind's oceans.

My life tuned in to yesterday's emotions.

I can't believe that I fall over and over again,

Even though I keep my feet secured in the sand.

 

Thunder rolls around, taking up the October night skies.

Exhaustion glosses my all-seeing eyes.

 

I forget I live in a physical world.

It is probably so common now that ALL of us retreat into the world of our mind, surfing the ominous black waves, washing up on a tinseled beach. The physical world of reality is so loud with war sounds, with lives being shot out of cannons, shrunken heads decaying inside recovered helmets. "I'm alive because I have died..." is a great line because with the body count rising we all die just a bit...just a bit, but tangible. Very nicely done, Maria! take care...dan

Well put. Thanks for the review Dan!
This is an awesome write! I love the way you mentally drift away forgetting that you "live in a physical world." I often do the same... feeling like it's just me and my thought. Great work I loved it :)

Some times we withdraw because we have so many wounds
and the world is snatching just a little bit more
and you are already fragile
you cant handle one more attack
so you withdraw
but believe me the right person comes along and sits with you
in your withdrawal and loves you
till you come out
I have one person that is doing that now
its beautiful

Thank you so much Shei!
Very powerful, I can relate to what the poem is saying, it is easier to dwell in your own personal world than attempt to make way in the painful world we live in. Beautiful work x

More often then so, that is true. Thanks for the review!
Yes the physical world is often like a curse.. it rains down mortality on everybody and stifles us with human desires and emotions.. I can relate to what you have said here with ease.. nice work!
