the seeker


feeling my way in the dark
not afraid but 
...apprehensive 

senses heightened 
hyper 
aware
i feel a heartbeat

i hear tormented screams 
from behind doors
far away
yet feel safe somehow
as long as 
i follow 
the drum of the heart

we are all made of stars
cosmic dust whirling 
pulsing with life

i love sensing 
chemical reactions
i smell sweat and
the heat is tangible

running my fingers along the walls
i realize they are alive and breathing

oh.. i giggle to myself and feel my surroundings tremble in reply
it seems i've fallen down another rabbit hole

This gives me goosebumps. You have such an evocative way with words.
