An Escape Into The World Of Exhaustion - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

to live in a closed world
plunge into a workload that
makes you forget
what happens next
the one that seals you away
from the anxiety of
a place where you get
annihilated where you
only see the tracks of your
where these fade into
mist where mist turns into
air where everything
becomes a clean slate of
space and it is colored
dark where not a single star
flickers where your body
takes heat and you back
aches and your neck is
shrinking into your
and then you are seduced
into bed
where there is only
one of you

you have not closed the window
and the rain is heavy
and there is lightning
a flash
and loud thunder
and water gets in your
room and it is cold

you do not know what is happening
you are fast asleep
all your limbs are dead
