NEED A BREAK FROM EVERYTHING? I get you.

on 21/02/2015

TAKING A BREAK

I needed it.

All the noise and the buzz,
All the rush and the fuss,
They all came to a
Stop.

All the clamour and clatter,
The chit-chat and chatter,
They all came to a
Stop.

Not shutting down,
Just shutting out,
Briefly and slowly,
So deep.

Just turning down,
Not turning away,
Calmly and finally,
Without sleep.

Like submerging your head under water
In a warm bath in your home…
Like disappearing into the waveless ocean,
Still feeling the world outside…

And then, ever so slowly,
Sound by sound,
Vibe by vibe,
Pitter by patter….
I returned to dry land –
My reality, my noise…
Still feeling the watery drops on my body
Like pleasant energy patches.

I needed it.
