Precious Pesky Ponderances

Inspired by Reena’s Exploration Challenge #153

awake and alert
the mind focuses
on the tasks at hand
thoughts aligned to achieve results

i am pleased

day dreams slip in
swirling from one fantasy
to the next
thoughts drifting in pleasure

i am captured

sleep beckons my attention
wide awake with intrusion
no, thankfully not tonight
thoughts cease momentarily

i am relieved

nightmares force me awake
jumbling incoherent images
rousing heart-pumping emotions
thoughts gone haywire and weird

i am frightened

always pondering
images, words, feelings
flitting in and about
never-ending and overbearing

sometimes...
   they land on paper
          chapters closed and resolved
   they remain in my heart and mind
           not quite addressed, fearful of consequences
   i yell them at the hologram before me
           the need to purge anger arises
   they land on my cheeks
            the need to feel overwhelms
   i push them into the deep recesses, locked away
             remaining hidden from myself

but always a stream that never stops flowing
