poetry by j matthew waters

Archive for the tag “unconsciousness”


one minute you are wide awake
the next nothing exists
a time lapse that could have lasted
a lifetime & a half
filled with dreams you were dying to fill
crushed into a nondescript paradigm
designed by your own doing
surrounded by those who love you
calling your name
time & time & time again
until finally there you are again
your old self turned into something
ever slightly different
never knowing what truly happened

june two thousand twenty-two
