Dragons Without Dungeons


My world stopped
revolving around me
the other day.
It happened in the oddest way.

My perceptions
drained out of my ears
and pooled beneath my feet.

My expectations
seeped out of my pores
and evaporated into nothingness.

My stresses are no longer
strapped to my back.
I walk a few inches
higher than the ground.

It may take some time to
acclimate to life
without melodrama,
but that’s OK.

I no longer harbor fear.

    I read humor in the image and lightness in the poem and like the way both taken together make me feel. 🙂
