Daily missive for Wednesday the 27th of February.~by Peter Forster



Daily missive for Wednesday the 27th of February.

Chase me
Through the smoke screen
It is a difficult transition
From listening ear
To internal confidant
Sliding through the
Narrow gaps between
One reasoned process
And another
Resisting the urge
To deviate.
When a train of thought
Shuttles past
Close enough to board
There is comfort
In the familiar sound
Of complete sentences
When every instinct
Is to grasp them tight,
Letting go
Is a dangerous concept
To explore
Even as it tickles
The erogenous zones
Breathing is a habit
Too dangerous
To break
Play with my emotions
Catch me if you can
Deeply held beliefs
Are all we have
To distinguish one from another
If we are anything
Beyond ourselves
When pricked
By an outpouring
Of inner conflict
There is consequence
Keep me company
Even for a little while
Perhaps breathing together
Will prove
An exceptional circumstance
Worthy of recording
In the journal
Of remembrance
Write me
We can cite the passage
As recognition
Of a human touch.
