GIVING UP
(5/4/15)


what
a great relief

what
a great release

to close
the eyes
and simply say
that you're not
going to play
anymore

deadlines
have died

responsibilities
evaporated

let the world
and its machinations
motor on
without you

you just want
this little
personal bit
of society
to stop

a free floating
raft of ego
on the great sea
of civilization

disconnected

unfettered

you need
nothing
and no one
needs you

you take
a big breath
and exhale
slowly

life seems
restored

then you get
out of
bed

you get
ready
for work
