walking backwards into my mind

I wake up to the sun streaming in,

so bright I can see it with my eyes closed,

I am warm in bed, I shuffle around feeling the cotton against my skin,

stretch those sleepy arms and legs and sit up,

I take a look around and take a look into my mind,

walking backwards the night before,

teeth, car, messages, dinner, train, school, car, cooking, computer,

and then a pick up the pace walking back through the night before,

chats, unpack, drive, heavy, hugs, van, burgers, hike, rockclimb, mushrooms, campfire, swim, river, tent, hugover,

I run backwards through the days and nights,

revisiting places long forgotten,

opening my heart to smiles I once shared,

walking through everything I dared and cared.
