Form

I am
Sitting in a corner;
I am
Sitting in a small
Dark room;
I can not stop thinking,
What to do;
It is dark
And
Very shallow,
There is not an inch
To move;
My mind is
Filled already,
There are many
thoughts
To find;
Words form into
Sentance
Yet
Thousands more
In mind;
So many lines
To choose,
Which one shall
I use?
The clock is moving
fast;
Yet time is running
Slow;
I feel as though
I’m racing;
I am running for a
Show;
My mind has gone
Ballistic;
I am changing from
My form;
I am now a
Horse,
This is quite a
Show;
I am running,
Running,
Running,
It is longer
Than you know;
Here I come,
Now I go,
Changing faster
Than you know;
I am now a cat,
A panther would
You know;
I am very mean
And lean,
My coat has quite
A glow;
A thousand
Tricks to
Show;
I am climbing up
A mountain;
Watching all you know;
I am now formed back
To human
And
I am looking
Into you;
I am getting
Deeper,
Deeper,
Deeper,
Within you;
You are reading
Hearing
Seeing
More fond words
Of mine;
You think your
Only reading;
Yet I am standing
Close nearby;
You feel them,
Hear them,
See them;
This you can
Not deny;
I am getting
Even closer;
I am now standing,
Right behind;
I can see you,
Looking,
Inching,
Watching all nearby;
So when you close
Your eyes,
Keep my words,
In mind;
You will never know
When I am near,
Nor when I’m standing by,
As for now,
I will let you go,
As for now,
I will let you slide;
There is no more
Running races,
I am no longer changing
Faces;
There are no more mountains
Left to climb;
I am just sitting,
In this dark and shallow
Room of mine.
