Temporary Tension

Fleeting dark of
storm clouds rolling in,
the burning pink
of sky.
Sun dropping low over
power lines swaying
in the evening breeze. 

The pins and needles
piercing through –
nervous, shaking energy
Down through fingertips,
numb tingles
come and go.

Weighed down worry,
no motivation,
drive gone.
All consuming tension,
no concentration.
Five pounds gone,
sliver lining.

A phase, a momentary blip
to laugh over
in years to come.
Laughter a distant memory
in the moment,
that feeling of
happiness torn,
hopelessness moved in. 

In through the nose,
out through the mouth.
