Day Three Hundred and Forty One: 29th June 2013

it’s getting tighter

synapses pulling
between my temples
taut
stretched

mumbling
slurring
words won’t come

only flashes of colour
blinding
searing

and then
quite suddenly
my head implodes

Day Three Hundred and Forty: 28th June 2013

it was strangely

calming

huddled in a bare

corner

staring at three

lines

intersecting

soothing an abondoned

soul

floating

aimlessly beside me

external

an entity

longingly waiting

till safe

to come back

Day Three Hundred and Thirty Six: 24th June 2013

anticipation rose
a nervous lump in my throat
a bright sun sparkled
stars bouncing across rippling water
excitement welled higher
the searing energy was palpable

twenty years ago…

Day Three Hundred and Thirty Five: 23rd June 2013

we breathed again
when you left the room
atmosphere re-oxygenated
heartbeats slowed
trembling eased
fists unclenched
faces relaxed

for now…
