I lost my head in the clouds
idling somewhere unknown
My heart almost fell too
but I caught it just in time
Reflexes have improved
but there’s no other option
If sanity serves to stand a chance
they certainly can’t worsen
I wonder about my mind
why I had no control
and how it felt detached
acting on its own
It’s crazy how it perceives
only what it chooses
but sometimes that can be
the cause of me losing
I dare to say my world is fine
and the big sky is still clear
No stormy weather predicted
and my vision no longer obscure

Sounds like you got lost in confusion but found your way back. I think sometimes we need to get lost to find ourselves.
I think you’re right, Kim, and this is fiction but would have been relatable to years ago.
As long as we end on a happy note. Non-fiction or fiction always hope. 🙂
A lovely poem Lauren. Life can be hard and we can only find our way through by experience and maybe getting lost. “No mistakes, only lessons”, I read somewhere, but they are only lessons if we learn from them! 😊❤️ Xxx
Thanks, Chris, and it’s all fine if we do learn; that’s the hard part. 🙂 ♥ xo
Lovely poem. I think we all have days like that Lauren. Hugs, my friend.
Thanks, Michelle, and I don’t think I’m the only one who has experienced this. 🙂 I forgot to include that this is fiction when I first posted it and written from past memories…many hugs back to you. ♥
It may be fiction, but it probably hits a chord with many.
Anxiety stays with us from childhood through to the present. I can’t think of any time in that natural progression there is a clear vision of our future. We may think the vision is not obscure but that can only be because of hindsight. Life will surprise you all the days of your life.
True thoughts, Ian, thanks for sharing!
lnevitable the paths of all the ups and downs through the course of life …
Ye,the big blue sky and the brilliantly shining sun are always there for us even behind the grey clouds …
Loved your emotive,poetic expression,dearest Lauren!Sending hugs & kind thoughts your way 🙂 Doda ❤ xxx
Thanks for your insight, Doda, and your lovely words, as always! I hope you’re doing well, my friend, and I’m sending hugs right back to you! 🙂 ♥
We all get lost on our journey sometimes.
Yes we do, Binky, and I’m not lost now. This was inspired from years past. 🙂
Perception is an obscure thing, one day everything looks one way, the next, it’s turned on it’s head! And actually, it is hard to say everything is fine, almost scary to do so, because even if things feel okay, the fear of the thought of thinking it’s okay, might somehow change it to not fine. Sounds silly I know, but I think it’s an underlying fear for many people. It would be nice to get up each new day and be totally bold in saying “it’s all good, and it’s staying good!” Very thoughtful! 🙂
Love your comment, Suzy, and I agree with everything you said. I can also relate to the fear of saying “all is good” hoping lightning doesn’t strike. 🙂
Thanks, Iris! ♥
