My Scattered Mind – A poem by Elisa English
Written on 3/16/2010
My minds, scattered, vague and elusive
Like fragments of images, seem so illusive
My thoughts filled with cloudy reveries, blur
Like floating collage of memories, in stir
Fuzzy faces and murky voices everywhere
Flutter my heart, leaving me in despair
I am a captive of my mind, nowhere out
Whatever damage time might have brought
To my memory, the future still seems bright
Whatever future turns into past, in its might
In my verse, my memory perpetuates.
And in me, my mind illuminates.
Stir = Prison (slang)
