Parainsonmia (A Poem)

There is too much air in my chest

And not enough in my lungs

I stumble, reset, refocus


There are faces in the dark

With wisps of smoke for hands

That reach for me

My mouth opens to scream

And scream and scream but

No one hears a thing


I stumble to find the switch

For light that floods the room

Stumble, reset, refocus

  1. Very intriguing… the first thing that came to my mind was anxiety…the emotions involved in struggling with anxiety. Obviously, as the author, you probably had something completely different in mind. But that is one of the things I love about poetry. Readers can take so many thoughts and impressions away with them.
