Recherché…This mind of mine

My thoughts roam in coloured felted inks

Ancient calligraphy

They could be respected: Picasso’s paintings

Or ridiculed: a one year old’s masterpiece.

Interludes take me away to random daydream zones:

Excerpts of chemical structures

Illogical solutions to a chemist’s questions

Nature’s gorgeous handiwork

Dangerous ‘what if’ loves

All in all a lil’ too recherché for the average mind

Overthinking all conversations

Shoulda, coulda, woulda

Bethinking silly smart puns

Mental smiles or mental tears

Depending on the day, hour, minute, second

00:00:01, mili and micro in some instances

Sometimes I’d wish for simplicity of thoughts

The boringly organised white shelves inside white walls

Beyond a white picket fence

A neatly organised mind


That just wouldn’t be me

My overly complicated mind serves me brilliantly well at times

There are certainly benefits to being less compulsive

Avoid decisions that I’d later regret

Yet other times it’s dangerously close to me flatlining

It causes chaos and downplays reasons to exist

But somewhere among the rubbles

I’ll always find my way back

And call in outside help as I’d need to

Yet the path back is always a simple Jesus hack.
