Another World

 

My world in slow motion walks beside me

Shows me a new life

With all the missing pieces

The faint scratches on the walls

The cobwebbed cracks in pavements

The tiniest insect struggling forward

I notice them all

I hear the rain announcing its entrance

Watch everyone leave

Be its only companion

There’s a new painting out there

My relaxed surroundings breathing slowly

But I’ve left my adrenaline behind

Sprinting to the line

Dancing until night closes its eyes

If I pace myself

Can I drag it back?

Background: MS has definitely slowed me down, but that's given me the chance to see what's around me in a different way
