a world away

slow exhaustion fills my head
and my heart with intolerance
and cold;
so slow… moving as if I’m stuck
inside a dream on pause-
escaping just so often to breathe-
releasing just enough to sustain life-
so lost inside this empty pool-
devoid of water, dark like night,
feeling concrete sides of my subconscious
rising around me…
breathe- i remind myself- breathe
and all will fill again as rain falls;
yet for now, i sit and wait-
waiting on my beloved to respond
to my calls for help…
wisdom is a world away
