it is both a blessing
and a curse
to feel everything
so very deeply.
– David Jones
when the world moves too fast
and you see every color
but have no time to think about it.
all the sounds reach your ears and penetrate your thoughts
but you can’t quite reach them
because there’s not enough time to
but for a moment the world slows, and you catch a breath,
and all the colors and shadows and sounds and smells
are given a chance to mean something,
and that’s when life is its most vibrant.
When you give the world time to soak into you
and color you a little differently.
