CURRENT

CURRENT

all
consumed
with what they
put you through
no longer
in your life
with them
you still fight
if you saw
them today
go over what
you would say
in your mind
looping narrative
wasting time
cuz you can't forgive
so you exist
instead of live
caught up in
emotions and thoughts
of those with
whom you've fought
role play
with yourself
do this or that
if you were someone else
anxiety
panic
author of
dramatics
write a
script
over it
you trip
fully
immersed
in lines
well rehearsed
create the
pyre
then put out
the fire
holding yourself
down
on this
Mary goes
round
humble
pie
changing
tides
current
rips
total
eclipse
spinning in
reverse
expanding
universe
falling debris
bursting cl;oud
no history
only now
