one lucid moment

An unflinching impulse
to do what just feels right.
An aversion to "straight" -
standing straight, walking straight,
talking straight, thinking straight.
An appreciation for anything
that sparks a smile or a laugh,
A realization that nothing here matters
tomorrow – so now is a good time

A myriad of thoughts drowned in a glass,
Concerns, ambitions, desires, hopes -
all gone for the time being.
A spectrum of feelings
happiness, sadness,
pain, pleasure…unfelt.
But in one (seemingly) lucid moment –
Love (of a sort).
