Awry.

A swift inhale
and the weight of the world lifted
by hands I don’t understand
I’m just content to let it all ride
on what,
I’m clueless,
but if I can see through this trial
to the next one,
I’ll be fine.
In my mind
I’m floating,
lifted on air,
can’t feel my feet
because the ground just isn’t there
and all I see is light.
All I feel is the sky,
I’m not high,
it just feels like all my troubles have gone awry,
and I
don’t want to speculate
lest they rush back to me now.
I don’t want to hesistate
lest they rush back to me now.
I just want to keep on floating,
everything is so easy,
tribulation doesn’t exist
and hardship is like breathing:
so natural.
Like sleeping,
temporary and necessary.
Slumber is kind of scary
because it tiptoes the line of death,
but I won’t hold my breath
because I’m not waiting to die.
The weight of everything feels like nothing
because everything has gone awry.
There’s a slight calm in this calamity,
despite the fact that all things move awkwardly,
I can sleep and smile knowing that I can coexist with myself properly,
still searching,
but not wondering why.
Everything has gone awry,
misplaced and slightly hollow,
I don’t have to wallow
because if there’s a tomorrow
I can retry everything.
and if I fail,
I can always deny everything.
Everything is so easy,
I don’t even have to try.
I dont even wonder why
the whole world has gone awry
I’m just standing.
Meekly appreciating this brief floating
gloating of understanding.

Awry.
