The Great Escape

The lights flicker, on and off
sparks float within the glass
like fireflies in the sky
dimming with each breath.

The mind leaps,
heart pounding,
jumping,
thoughts racing.

Grasping the air
reaching for attention
a visual pain
something to understand.

It stings, burns
unexpected
a need to make it greater;
no reason why.

Just a feeling of release!
