Limbo


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,
probably.

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

waiting
and waiting
and waiting
and waiting
for reality
to seep
back
in.
