this feeling
like floating
only half living
only half there.

you’re sleeping
while waking
and speaking
and laughing
but don’t truly care

going through
the motions
a shell on autopilot
a lifeless puppet on strings
muscle memory,

just waiting
while floating
and drifting
and dreaming
semi-conscious and unaware.

and waiting
and waiting
and waiting
for reality
to seep

      • We’re all animals, and it’s basic life. I find that most people suppress so many of their feelings, that if you so much as mention that you feel sadness or anger or pure joy, they speak up and notice those things about themselves. That is why it is such a wonderful thing to write and share, so we can all connect.
