Forever – Didn’t Want


I didn’t want forever
Just to be normal for a while
A break from all the thunderstorms
That constantly crash within my mind

There was no ask for certainty
Happiness found in the eye of a storm
But magic carpet rides don’t exist
And this temporary happiness could not fly

Borrowed time was needed
A break from the iron clad wrapped mind
For temporary belief that dawn rises
And the darkness can relinquish its grip for a while

Still waters to take stock
To pause and take a breath in the sands
Time to clear the throat from life’s smog choke
Relief from the sinusitis of a blocked and walled life

I didn’t want forever
Yet there was a cheating out of borrowed time
And somehow forever is evermore fleeting
In the storm clouds embedded in a tempestuous mind
