Arriving Poem by Annie Janine

Arriving

Rating: 3.2


Every step
is a colorful
BURST

the color
ripples out
in all directions

I dream
dream
dream

A million little lights
go off
in my brain

I'm alive
once again

the troubles fades
my mind hazes over
with careless things

wonderful things
AMAZING things

I watch it all happen
in my head
I see

thoughts dancing
ideas growing
bursts of energy

zipping
zapping
twisting
turning

my mind is somersaulting
cart wheeling
flipping

upside down
my world is turned

I'm sitting there
watching it all happen
watching it all change

I'm grinning
a sloppy grin

my eyes
look
crazy

rabid even
finally what I've been waiting for
something new

has arrived
I'm ready
for whatever it brings me

YES! Exactly. So much more real, and it isn't recyled phrases, it's you. You're going to go far X's and O's
