Some of the Best Things in Life

Have you ever been out on an arid day, working hard or walking too far and then, suddenly, it hits you. The thirst. So unquenchable you are near gasping for breath; the rattle in your chest reaching audibility. It sends dense. thick heaviness through your muscles and bones and you feel incredibly weak to the point of falling until…

…you drink a glass of cold, refreshing water.

Some of the best things in life are so trivial, and yet so important. And, yes, it is stifling out today.



In My Head

Dare you look across the vastness

To the silence around you?

It seems you go in circles

Each wave is like the next

And you’d cry out

But your lips are cracked and bleeding

And your eyes

Can hardly stand the evening


See the birds flying above

They know it won’t be long

And you fade in and out

A dreamless state a sleepless night

And you’d breathe slowly

If you had the time to take

And your body

Just sits there and waits


You feel nothing

Nearing the end

You are hoping

You pretend

Where are you going?

A feather bed.

Where are you floating?

In my head.
