My Mind Runs Away

 My Mind Runs Away

Sometimes my mind runs up, sometimes my mind runs down

When monstrous emotions surface resurface – impulsively my mind wants to run and run


My finger posed on triggers of hurt, desire, sex, relationship – the mind over stretches

A denied unconscious of trauma reverberate up and out – demanding controlling

Impulse demands me to pull – to let the mind off the leash – to let it run and run


Fighting this impulse is a newness to me and just thinking control is no help

Rather feeling my way into power – to trust being with emotion and not running

To be OK with the ebb of feeling – wash through me – be in me and not take over

To challenge the impotency of trauma by feeling, staying and not running
