A terrifing perception of a logical feeling

 1
It doesn't matter
 2
One thought
 3
can take up all space
 4
 
 
apparently, when you feel
 5
you don't stop
 6
you never stop
 7
like a river emptying itself
 8
down unto a body of oceanic liquid
 9
 
 
submerged unseen but never forgotten
 10
never realized, until the ignorance is accepted
 11
however, when that occurs
 12
all hope to lose it is gone
 13
 
 
It will eat you
 14
consuming every inch of your body
 15
disguised as nervous bumps
 16
leaving only one goal, to forget
 17
but it can not be forgotten
 18
 
 
for it is not a memory, but a part of self
 19
It is as real as the blood pumping through your veins
 20
as real as the skin wrapped around the body
 21
And as relevant as the earth rotating the sun
 22
 
 
For that thought is life
 23
your life
 24
what is perceived and what is not
 25
is all that is
 26
and that is your reality
 27
 
 
As I write this, my own thought comes back to me
 28
I try to avoid it  
 29
but, It follows me, like a shrouded figure through the streets
 30
I pick up pace, but suddenly it is directly behind
 31
 
 
Like my shadow
 32
it continues on
 33
until it becomes a part of me again
 34
And I accept it
 35
 
 
Allowing it to overflow my body
 36
consuming everything I am
 37
And bit by bit, I break
 38
but am still in one piece
 39
 
 
vibrations begin to multiply
 40
as if an earthquake began in the center of my soul
 41
Spreading into the crevices of my skin
 42
Finally, not leading to an internal explosion
 43
but to be released through the tips of my fingers
 44
 
 
So the girl who does not know
 45
can finally know
 46
And I can at last be whole
 47
 
 
As I see her there standing by the corridor
 48
holding a sign that's seems to have been ignored
 49
I approach slowly, still skeptic
 50
Still afraid, terrified, I walk towards her
 51
 
 
And by my last step, I know I am no longer lost
 52
But the fear does not stray,
 53
And I wouldn't want it any other way
