Counting (song line prompt)

In by Lara on March 3, 2011 at 5:05 pm

Counting all different ideas drifting away.
No matter what I do,
I can’t seem to stop my mind from going blank.
Images flit in and out, about as graspable as a fish out of water.
Faces. Places. Memories.
A distant past,
A possible, but possibly implausible future.
I know that all I’ve got to do is be present,
but nothing is illuminated.
Nothing is bright or shiny or new.
I’ve found that it’s an unfortunate consequence of being the way I am – Passive. Unnoticed. A wallflower in almost every regard.
It’s a miracle I can even articulate these thoughts here.
