i’m inside here guys.
trapped in my body in this disguise.
you wonder what is going on.
but i am looking at you like a pawn.
you see my body not responding.
don’t count me out because i’m alarming.
my eyes see you and your response.
my mind knows this will pass at once.
these tears will stop and the light will shine.
my legs and arms will move once again.
i’m sorry you have to watch this spectacle.
you have it worse than me i think.
you have to watch and try not to sink.
as your heart sees a man in despair.
his body twitching in his chair.
body extended clinching his fist.
no warning before this twist.
i thank you from the bottom of my heart.
for being there for me from the start.
for the seconds turned into hours for us both.
a silent bond we have promised like an oath.
that we both share our humanity together.
at any moment we might experience stormy weather.
it is the journey for which we learn along the way.
that we might try our best to keep these storms at bay.
