to rock the boat again

today i am sure i do not want to
overhear a single comment about how
really odd my life is
or even one word
can you believe some days i have
kind of lost my sense of humor
tipped my over the edge where there are no laughs
happiness comes in the form of
eager long strolls under the street lights
beginning so far from the busy street lights and the people
on this occasion i am unable to relax
after i have found a way to stop thinking
then i can let the heartbeat slow down a little bit or
take my time getting a bite while slowly breathing
opening my mouth for any reason besides speaking
not sure where my mind will wander to next
in the interest of peace i will avoid people
good news would be hearing no words but
having someone be very supportive anyway
that may be the biggest thing i ever ask
