Strange, Transcendant Feelings....

I have been having strange
things happen to me….
They come and go,
from time to time.

Sometimes, they rear their ugly heads at me,
for weeks at a time….
Then, …. they vanish….
for several months at a time.

When they come back.
it is without warning….
all of a sudden, they come…..
and, pluck me from hiding.

Strange feelings arise,
often spurred by music or sound.
Then, when they come,
I am dumb…..

My heart and breathing,
feel like they stop…..
suddenly, I am transported…
to a dream….
an altered state of mind.

These feelings are scarey,
I can not breathe….
They hold me prisoner….
until seconds later, they leave.

I am not sure what to do.

Do I embrace this transcendance….
or, do I run ??

Does anyone ever experience these feelings…..
anyone ??

It’s a scarey feeling,
and it’s no fun.
I don’t like it,
but, they have my number……
they don’t give invitations in advance.

Weird feelings that happen to me, from time to time.

  • to find out what it speaks of,what it wants us to know.….. at this time is so scarey to me.
    I am not sure why this is so.
    I want to be part of the journey, but sometimes I am left feeling like I am on a boat without a paddle.

    And what if you were in a boat with no paddle dearest Laura?..What would we have to do..? perhaps just be… and let go to the flow and know that this too is part of our journey that we are all on.

  • such heartfelt words of wisdom, T.
    I feel a bit warmer now, and not so afraid.
    I should let it take me where it will.

    Very well written, if this is a poem about real occurrences then it is frightening. The power of the human mind is an awesome thing.

  • Yes, the power of the human mind is amazing… and sometimes bewildering.
    Thanks so much, Byron !!

    Beautifully written,

    Sometimes I feel like mist travelling through the air
    Other times
    I’m a rock at the bottom of the pond.

  • Gee, thanks Lisa :)
    Your words are profound…… thanks so very much !!

    I read this and found myself nodding my head through out the read……I wonder at how the mind can be thinking two intense opposite feelings at the same time…which is what sometimes happens to me and though it does not scare me I wonder if it is a way to half the feelings so it does not scare me….
    Shite….I hope this makes a semblance of sense! Really wonderfully crafted prose…x

  • Yes, the mind is a strange thing sometimes…… I try to figure it out, but usually at times like these when I am having these intense periods of time, I try to just bare it.
    It comes without warning…. they don’t give invitations in advance.

    Thanks so much your comment and compliment, ArcadiaTempest !!

    Wonderful write. Amazing how the mind can spin in so many different directions. Funny, how rarely we have control over our very own thoughts!

  • Thanks, Ainsley !!!!!
