The Blink

Updated: Jul 18, 2023

You say I missed

some trains and that the people I knew moved on.

I live in a timeless dimension now,

but we exist

in the same space. It confuses me

when you count days.


I'm no longer sad I fell in,

It was a patch I had to walk through-

misty, unpleasant, but likely the best route

to here.

It was impossible to see,

and time halted inside entirely,

while it continued to tick for you.


I can't remember specifics now,

it has all been packed,

compacted

into a tiny marble.

A memory may swirl to the surface,

but I can't give you a sequence

or date- not even a rough summary.

Just a swirling chaos of events

I can't remember so well.


I know I'm not the same person now

coming out.

I've changed, I don't yet know how.

I've forgotten things I studied,

I've embraced instinct now.


"You were in there a while-

what happened?"

It's all still here.

I can break the marble

and let it all spread out clear

to view.

I'm sure it would shock you

for an afternoon.

I'm sure I would love

to feel understood,

But I won't break the marble.


It was only a moment for me.

A short nightmare, finished now.


I don't feel a second.

Isn't that a good thing

if it couldn't be helped?

I'm thankful.


Time is now irrelevant

in my reality.

Really is it fair to ask me

to give up such a gift?

The vision lingers. Soft light holds me. I am afraid to forget you. I don't want release from this merging of soft wishes and soft dreams. Such generous precision, making my life so precious, to think

I dived right into your world following the woman in yellow. She vanished and became me, and I knew how to find you. You were there, connected from a million dreams. You were there, all layers merged-
