Turning Away

I can feel it.
Chewing on the little moments of empty thought.
Tempting me to turn my attention and focus.
Softly reminding me of unresolved emotion.

I can hear it.
Asking me to deal with the pain and the loss.
Seducing me with the notion of peace.
Spewing lies of comfort and absolution.

I can see it.
Replaying the scattered memories of yesterday.
Teasing me with untainted memories.
Blinding me with false hope for resolution.

I turn away.
I cover my ears.
I hide my eyes.
I am not ready.

Not yet.

    “Stand Still”
    by David Wagoner

    Stand still.
    The trees ahead and bushes beside you are not lost.
    Wherever you are is called Here, and you must treat it as a powerful stranger,
    Must ask permission to know it and be known.
    The forest breathes. Listen.
    It answers, I have made this place around you. If you leave it, you may come back again, saying
    No two trees are the same to Raven.
    No two branches are the same to Wren.
    If what a tree or a bush does is lost on you,
    You are surely lost. Stand still. The forest knows
    Where you are.
    You must let it find you.
