Hastywords

SLOW MOTION by Hastywords

Anxiety
Infects her thoughts
Holding her hostage
Screening and erasing
Her cries for help
Fear
Riddles her with angst
Constantly chastising
Rendering her helpless
To its mindless chatter
Irrationality
Hijacks her emotions
Running high speed
Full throttled attack
Beating her senseless
Depression
Sends in its battalion
Of whispering ants
Surrender this day
Throw it all away
Paranoia
Drops crazy into place
Absorbed by her mind
And she finds her space
As darkness descends
Dementia
Drapes its fog over her
And the voices stop
And the world slows
And the devil hits mute
Delusion
Descends in a misty veil
Angels dressed to the nines
Blurry and out of focus
Standing just beyond
Hallucination
Smiles…
No, its upside down
Frowns
Its 8mm conspiracy
Hope
Appears; a commercial break
A smooth talking salesman
Speaking like a breeze
His voice vanishing time
Faith
Opens her mouth to speak
As the salesman’s eyes
Find her like a dream
Asking to speak her mind
Despair
Reaches out with a Shhhhh
As he kisses her lips
Stealing all her cares
Before they can escape
Anguish
Fades from the light
With a forked tongue
As black and white rise
From the colors of her life
Despondency
Carried her for awhile
Halfway into the nevermore
Away from the light
And away from all the dark
Consciousness
Echoes from its tomb
Buried alive it fights
Inside her head
How is it I’m not dead?

    Beautiful and (as ever) annoyingly relatable. I wish you colour and light and love, and that you FEEL them.

    Hasty, your poem says it all. I’m amazed how in so few words you can say so much.
