Grey Matter Cell

Today I will let my mind

sit in its grey matter cell

and pine for better days

that never were.

Today I will alleviate

the strain of expectation

from my shoulders

and just exist.

I will let the storm outside

be the mirror to my mind

and in my head

I’ll be safe and warm,

or dark and cold,

or whatever.

Today there will be no succor,

no remorse, or guilt,

but today I can hone that

well practiced detachment,

for the day

when such a thing

will be needful.

That will be a bad day.

So, today I will let my mind

sit inside its grey matter cell

and pine for better days

that never were.
