24 Hours Later


my mind

- full of sugar

with misty smoke

- to distract me

a hazy fog

- obscures my mind

can't sit still

- keeps me from sleep

mind wandering

- daydream reality

disjointed line-moves

- in daily life

thoughtless void

- filling my mind with

empty sparking space

- electrified silence

full of tension

- eyes straining

blinding sunlight

- trying to listen

foot jiggles

- but can't comprehend

heart pounds

- through thick clouds

a passerby's smoke

- jolting awake

I breathe deep

- the tingling sense


-I try to fight it

sugar cravings

- mere distractions

restless mouth

- longing for one last breath
