Some Days I’m Tapped Out Of My Mind

Some Days I’m Tapped Out Of My Mind

Some Days I’m Tapped Out Of My mind

Some Days I’m Tapped Out Of My mind — Kaylaa T. Blackwell

Some days
I’m tapped out of my mind
Left with nothing
But obstrucating thoughts
And deafening silence
Still I leave room to hear
The lovely white-banded
Mockingbird sing.

Some days
I have everything
Though I am grasping
Pulling
At straws
Trying to slow
A busy mind
That run for miles.
Yet…I can find solitude
And promise
In the madness.

Some days
Fighting back the tears
Of rejection
Working through
My self-acceptance
Reaching
Wondering
How far can I go
On negative equity
In my bank account?
What altitude or
Diabolic cloud
Can I scale
Even when my chances
Look frail?
Yet set on not surrendering
To the statistical Gallup
I continue to keep
My head up.

Some days
I can sleep through
The night
Put up a good fight
Resist
The grim reaper
That lurks on the peripheral
Of my dreams
Looking for a crack
To chase me into the sun
But I snap back
Nestling a warm reality
With a grip on consciousness
Beautiful meanderings
And possibilities.

Some days
I remember
Love lost
And weep
Spirit gained
And laugh
Salivate
On yesteryears
Future rising calibers
Cornucopias ever after’s
Or just surviving the moment
That may leave me
Lucid or perplexed
Finding peace in a life of resurrection
The fortitude of pulling myself back
So many times from the pits
Of rock bottom.

Still
No matter
The days
No matter
What is going on
I am eternally grateful
Because I am right here
With you
And with life
There is always
opportunity
To grow wings
Take a deep breath
And soar.

    Beautiful. This poem is tinged with sadness and reminds me of the work I have left undone, the friends I fail to connect with, the loved one I neglect to tell them that I love them. But I find hope in the last verse. If nothing else I can be grateful for all my blessings and as long as I have a beating heart and can fill my lungs with fresh breaths I can go on and capture a beautiful day tomorrow.
