a glimpse

there is a
gentle sea where
separating the
sadness and
the anxiety
a shimmering layer
where love laps
at the tender
agonies

i float here
basking in the
warm suffusion
aware of the
fluctuations
all around me
but content
to remain here
as long as i can

rare moments
where peace exerts
a sense of control
where i can breathe
lounging placidly
are to be savored
knowing my mind
will waterboard me
any moment now
a glimpse of heaven
sandwiched between
perpetual hells
