The Moment is Awesome

Sounds rushing by

The pressure

Builds

Heavy filth rising to the surface

Lead organs sinking

Anger, hate, disgust

Rising, building

Suffocating

Flash! Flash!

Breaking down

Down on the ground

It's quiet

Sidewalk hums beneath my touch

Coolness melts me down

Quiet

Caught in the moment

Between parting crowd and crushing anxiety

Weightless

I breathe

Thoughts muted

Touch unfelt

Hell drains away

I stand

World fades back in

Coolness of a silent memory

Touches my skin

Resets my mind

I walk on

Finish the day

Remember the moment

This poem is about: 
Me
