Bottled Sanity


Sunrise...what now?...dive back into my pillow?
find sleep again?...depends on the dreams
try to move?...my body in motion...head spinning
where do I go?...this way?..that way?
can I find my way back?
good or evil today?...are they the same?
do I care?...do I want to?...does it matter?
time is still...creeping...barely moving
am I awake?...is this today?...yesterday?
somewhere in between?
do I love today?...hate?...are they the same?
Invisible panic...fear...guilt...insecure
9 AM...Reminder alarm buzzing
quickly sip and swallow...my definete answer
or may be the question?...are they the same thing?
different shapes...sizes...blue...yellow...brown...white
damn childproof caps...brown bottles
confusing but hopeful...swallow and wait
no longer fuzzy...spinning has ceased
ahhh...finally..rage subsides...peace abides
once more I absorb my bottled sanity!
