shrink

back bent slouching
the curve pushes you down
belly squishing extended
you shrink from life

alone you notice
your posture, your pain
make it go away

you shrink away
from the weight
the responsibility
descends

down into the mist
of uncertain thoughts
will they know the fake?

rarely tested, the back bends
alone it descends
rushing up to meet you
the floor of the cavern
crashes into you

you turn and smile
when someone enters the room

disjointedunconnected

I don’t belong on this path
Walking through the parking lot
There is something not quite right
Looking down at the pavement

The grass, the trees, the cars
I’m not in the right place
Disjointed, unconnected
Eyes are telling me
Tell me I don’t belong

This isn’t the only time
It is often this way
Walking, sitting, being
Not, quite, right

Is this my place?
That lawn, those bushes
They are there when I pass
In their place

Because, even when
I know it’s right,
I feel at times out of place
The feeling hits like a wave
Unexpected, an intruder
