Look up, the sky

I walk head down, counting the steps, counting my breaths and my heartbeats, feeling my lungs expanding and contracting, my muscles tensing under the effort.

I walk but I am going nowhere, I am running in circles, and I feel like the same old tune endlessly repeating, dispersing itself in the void.

I walk because I am tired of running, and I walk because I am tired of the pain. 


Drops falling down and disappearing into the earth. Roots sucking the water, lymph running up to the farthest extremities.

Look up, the sky.

There is a great sigh that comes from deep in your body when you lie and look at the sky. I suspect that you do this.. c
