Gotta Go

by Brenda   Jun 28, 2020


Sitting here
working
I don't want to be here-
at this time
in this moment-
gotta go, gotta go, gotta go...
-
Those inside voices
are screaming
to be heard-
nothing comes out
not even
a whimper-
at this time
in this moment -
gotta go, gotta go, gotta go...
-
Suddenly restless
rooted to the spot
immobilized by my own
insanity-
thoughts roll about
my brain
not one making sense
at this time
in this moment -
gotta go, gotta go, gotta go...
-
At this time
in this moment -
these feelings pass-
leaving me feeling
more unsure
of what just happened -
time stood still
I marched on
through the fog
currently occupying my brain
my inside voices
still whispering -
gotta go, gotta go, gotta go....

    I think I can relate to this, Brenda. It's akin to panic and you can't quite place it which makes it all the worse.
    Sorry I missed this one.

    All the best as ever,
    Ben

      Thank you Ben. It did feel like that, so strange. This year has been so weird.
