When my thoughts 
start to stack up 
I can feel the pressure 
in my head increase 
I can see all these
overstuffed file folders
crammed together
and even picturing that means
I’m adding more weight
to the load

Then the words just start
tumbling out, 
flaring all over the pages

The contents
of my consciousness




None of them are coherent 
They hold no answers for me
I call them poetry

And then I stuff them
back in again

I am limitless
