State of Mind

by Fré Bayuh



State of Mind



Grief.


A natural response they say, though it feels so odd


One morning you wake up and life feels normal, the next numb and static.


An odd psychological sensation that ebbs and flows


Limbo.



Time.


The only real medicine


Ain’t no Tylenol or other painkiller that cures this one.


Patience is a virtue they say, but


I need this pain to dissipate.


Heavy



Love.


Abstract yet concrete: tricky and simple


This one heals too.


Heals and reveals


Grief.



Mirror.


Not a direct reflection, but


A double-edged sword.


Time a fluxion of both


Glass.
