Navigating Puddles

My world is full of puddles

Each one a memory that I keep

Their water it is very cold

Their water is so deep

 

It’s my mind that’s making puddles

That lay scattered on the floor

I try to navigate around them

But my mind keeps making more

 

Should I close my eyes and feel my way

And then hope for the best?

My mind laughs at the thought of this

Has my head set me a test?

 

My mind is making puddles

They lay scattered on the floor

I try to navigate around them

But my mind keeps making more

 

I’d buy a pair of wellingtons

To try and help me through

But the sloping puddles are too steep

And some are out of view

 

My mind is making puddles

They lay scattered on the floor

I try to navigate around them

But my mind keeps making more

 

It never used to do this

It’s something that feels new

So I stay in bed avoiding them

What else can I do?

 

My mind is making puddles

They’re all scattered on the floor

I’d try to navigate around them

But my mind keeps making more
