stuck on a person

what it feels like to be stuck on a person

is what it feels like to be trapped in quicksand

surrounded by beckoning outstretched limbs and hands to help

the refusal to accept assistance

preferring instead

to slowly be consumed by another


when the utterance of a noise even remotely similar

leaves you shivering

like the lost mutt in search of its imaginary owner


and the worst part is the unknown

because you begin to question whether the person in your mind

ever actually existed

when the sparkling vision of them drifts further from reality

the likeness has faded

and you are stuck on a dream


stuck on a dream 

what it feels like to be stuck on a dream


The author's comments:

poetry has become my outlet for whatever i cannot bring myself to say. it allows me to slowly process and accept my thoughts rather than pushing them aside.
