Regression

no
don’t let it take you
those grinding weights
that make your eyelids so heavy
and fill your eyes with fog
you have found
don’t let it take you
to the cave
lined with flickering lights
and dripping rocks
underneath the shore
I know it promises
peace and rest and the treasure
filled with happy memories
all piled from your past
no
don’t let it take you
back through your timeline
because
I need you now
the world needs you
as you
and your presence
to feel the clear air
to face the sunset and the sunrise
to figure the shape of the clouds
to wish upon the stars
and dance in rain
and you know
that stuffy place that draws you to tire
is in your mind
