Anxiety of a Wandering Mind

Tick...

Tock...

Tick...

The air is vibrating with an invisible pulse

Swarming in the expired air of others

Pens and pencils slide smooth over paper

But mine-

Stuck in the world between real or not?

The problems solution sits, memories float by

Hyperactive thoughts swim to fantasies

And snap back to the problem at hand

Here! The answer is here

But again the mind mingles

Flirting with insanity

So lost down the path

There!

There, there, there, there, THERE!

The answer has been all along

The bird is blue

Inspired by the fact that during tests if I can't figure out a problem my mind wanders
