i just can't speak

...freezing my tongue
and my heart...

life stops for me, just for a second.

...but then you resume speaking, as if there were no pause

some one else comes in

and rescues my tongue

it thaws

i speak again
but it's not me
and you look at me

just slightly perplexed


Obviously, this is not even close to being a great piece of poetry. It is just a moment of time, that gives expression to how it feels to be switching between parts in my body. I have lost time countless times - I barely remember half of my life.

My childhood, my adolescence, large parts of my adult life, are vanished. Held by parts that may or may not give them back to me; for very good reasons.
