Slow Down

By , Sturgis, MI

Every minute passing faster

So fast I'm forgetting my own name

Did I really just do that?

Forgetting my own name.

 

Was I really just walking?

It felt like I was sprinting

Trying to catch the time

Running through my fingers

 

Another second has passed

I forget what I did last

My head is spinning

The floor is spinning

 

Everything. Just. Stop.

 

I forget how to count

The numbers rolling by

Faceless people

Begging, come back

 

How could I let it slip away from me?

 

I can't trust my own brain

I try to hold it together

With clawed fingers

Not enough, I'm falling

 

Second, tick, flashback, repeat

Second, tock, flashback, repeat

Second, tick, flashback, repeat

Second, tock, flashback, repeat

 

I'm living in the past 

The future around the corner

Present nonexistent

I. Forget. My. Name.
