"Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present." --Marcus Aurelius

I am surrounded by
bodies, they taunt me
they linger inside me
when I try to sleep
I am enveloped
in soft, longing hell
as I move through this endless
warm river and deep
currents flow through me
streams of llife move in me
whole world intrude on my
life left alone
and when faced, electricity
twisting and tricking me
sparks far away from me
on my way home
yeah, I am surrounded ny
bodies, they taunt me
they linger inside me
when I try to sleep.

The poem just rolls smoothly. I'm quite baffled by it a bit. I think you trumped me yet again. Regardless, I love reading it, and envisioning the scene you picture.
