disorientation

 
I can't shake feeling I'm in the wrong time
completely misplaced
a stranger in my own skin
not really meant for this
whatever it is
when the music starts
I never recognize the tune
I'm trying to tango with 2 left feet
watching storms build on the horizon  
not worried about thunder
...just the lightning  
I keep trying to tuck
...so I can effectively roll
but I'm all tangled in brambles
nowhere to go
bridges are fallen & roads are closed
I don't have a script...
but somehow I've become part of the cast
spotlight in my eyes & tongue-tied  
I'm at an impasse
 


woke up a little jagged this morning...
