my mind gets stuck in the past, and
replays memories buried deep within
over and over again, tormenting me
making me acutely aware
that I am merely existing
and not living..!!
when I am in such freeze mode
where I sit mutely feeling numb
I stare intently at time
right in its eye wanting to know from it
how much is too much, and
when would enough be really enough?
when I know I can't burn the bridge behind
I feel like walking away from all the known
and going to a place never before explored
where I choose to remain a person unknown
allowing my soul to heal myself
living so long, a life of anonymity..!!
