i should take flight

6 Sep

This is a re-post of mine from a little while back. A fellow blogger reminded me of this and I thought I would give it a bit more life. Thank you fellow blogger for reminding me of this.

I can’t see my face through the noise, the sound is deafening, a lifetime of audio obstacles has rendered my sight useless.

My manifestations are contorted into otherworldly beings that I don’t know, the stimulus has taken hold, and this vice will not be broken by mere thought.

I want to know me one day and experience the world as a human, heart unbroken and dried up tears.

This life is beautiful to those who have not soured by this life that is ugly. I want to go outside.

Where my wings unfurl and lungs expand, I should take flight.

Let these eyes be fixed, all fuss quiet, no more confinement in cells with scratchy glass.

I want to move out and carry on, the day be long and the evening new.

    “A cerebral one.” Just as I was going to leave well enough alone. Just wait for it… and whoops, there it is. Peace.

      I think I waited in vain. In my Bob Marley voice.

            This is where I leave well enough alone. I am too distracted anyway. I need to take flight. Catch you on the other side of tomorrow, mr. Marley. Maybe. Peace.
