Drifting: Journal Collection - Exhibit A

The panic is wearing off and I'd love to say I'm left  
in a hard state of disillusionment  
with a fast paced introduction to, and protrusion from  
my sternum  
 
but it's just  
not  
the case  
 
I sat over there mulling
stranded on a giant pile of thoughts  
on what my life was doing without me  
and who won this time  
and did Monday night miss me as much  
as I missed it  
and when is that thing happening again  
and where  
the fuck  
is my drink in all of this?  
 
Emotions surrounding this heap  
were somewhat tumultuous  
and I would have drowned  
if I had let myself swim too far out  

but no worries  
I only ducked under a few times
and
I'm a strong swimmer anyway

Now  
I just miss you
