Living In The Moment

I just want to hold onto this feeling.
I don't want to feel like this moment is fleeting.
Running away on me again.
I chase it.
I live it.
I am it.
I just want to hold onto this feeling.
This feeling of right now.

No more seconds.
No more minutes.
No more hours.
No more days.

Living can be overwhelming
and death is easy, I've been told.

Can I breathe?
I often forget how.
Can I see?
I often mistrust my eyes.
Can I touch?
I often can't feel.

Everything and nothing all at once
make it stop, the ticking in the clock.

There is no yesterday,
tomorrow hits before
I even grasp what has happend today.

I just want to hold onto this feeling.
I don't want to feel like this moment is fleeting.
Running away on me again.
I chase it.
I live it.
I am it.
Why can't I hold onto this feeling?
The feeling of right now.

Hi Dustuhnee,

I really love this poem. You have a very deep emotion that comes out while reading your words. Many times during the day I feel the same way. I am just not good with expressing feelings in words. Keep up the great work and I imagine you are already in a book deal.
