May – Written Thursday 20th May 2021 (Aged 46)


it was grey this morning
i stepped outside
and the cool may air
filled my lungs
and open my eyes
it woke me up
and primed my senses
i need this fresh air
i need to focus
i need to be there
and i need to feel alive
let this fresh air
fill me inside
let the grey painted sky
pass me by
let the clouds roll on
observe me and know
that i am already gone
