Breathless in the mind

Breathless in the mind
Running,
chasing,
What I want
An arms length away,
There, I see it,
I run to it
I am breathless in the mind

A pause
Gasping and doubled over
Eyes rise from a spinning ground,
There, I see it
Just an arms length away
Standing there breathless in my mind

Another run will make it
Another pause will have it
Happiness, I see it
Shimmering in the yellow horizon
One more burst
One more thrust
Lunging forward
Breathless in my mind

Runs and pauses
Reach where I saw it
It was there I saw it
Barren and scorched
By my wants and needs
Happiness has moved
A little more to the east
Under the yellow horizon
There it lies
One more chance to find
I begin over
Breathless in the mind

-Arsee.

  2. Thanks for your posting. I also think laptop computers have grown to be more and more popular currently, and now are usually the only type of computer employed in a household. The reason is that at the same time that they are becoming more and more affordable, their processing power keeps growing to the point where they may be as robust as personal computers coming from just a few years back.

  4. Many thanks for sharing all these wonderful discussions. In addition, the perfect travel and medical insurance system can often ease those fears that come with visiting abroad. A new medical crisis can quickly become extremely expensive and that’s guaranteed to quickly decide to put a financial burden on the family’s finances. Putting in place the suitable travel insurance package deal prior to leaving is worth the time and effort. Thanks a lot
