Balloon

My mind feels detached
From the rest of me;
Floating alongside myself
Like a balloon on a string.
It’s all out of sync
So I look, but I don’t see.
I hear, but I don’t listen.
I touch, but I don’t feel.
I don’t love,
But I don’t hurt.
My mind will burst soon;
A pin lightly taps
Taut rubber skin
And bang.
It’s over.

  1. Such a nice way of expressing a sense of despondence. The state of being but not allowing yourself to be? Better hold back that pin. Nice imagery.
