Eyelids peel away 
Pupils enlarge 
Neural synapses open 

Air slips in my veins 
Blood stream widens 
Each cell breathes new energy

My heart beats faster 
More expansive 
Yet focused on what matters 

Well-developed thoughts 
Faster in time 
Contemplative in nature 

Well-being laced
I’m euphoric 
With eternal unrest eased 

Here, the time flows less agonizingly 
With my increased engagement across life
And feelings of invincibility 
I even feel an urge for connection…
Feel excitement for the mystery…
Excitement for the opportunities…

I’m excited again

    That’s a great place to be. I enjoyed my visit here. Your lines are expressive and I enjoyed the build up.
