Owl Poetry & Prose

Restricted Mind

It’s like speaking too many languages at once

I want to, no wait a minute, stop!

The view was stunning, I wanted to write about it

Describe it in detail

But alas, no time, the memory fades and gets crowded over with other thoughts

It was a beautiful lush green, with the smell of rain kissed leaves

Reminded me of a long forgotten perfume

What was the name, I forget

Thoughts crowd my mind, each one fighting to overpower the other

Sigh, it’s forgotten now

Something about a long ago scene that triggered a memory

Something from my childhood? It’s gone now

Slipped away, crowded over and restricted by other thoughts

Thoughts I would rather not be thinking

Wish I was free, free to enjoy the thoughts that brought me joy

Free to forget and bury the thoughts that brought me down

But my mind is restricted, now

Someday it will be free
