out of sync – a dilemma

 As seconds become minutes
Minutes hours,
Hours days
Days weeks, months, years, nowadays
belly abhors emotional rollercoaster rides

Gore, crime scenes, terrorist outrages
Nasty bloodthirsty in-laws, outlaws
Harsh jarring sights, sounds
Set teeth on edge
Turning face bile green

An aficionado of crime thrillers
Where sleuths pit wits
With wily protagonists
This heady Sudoku
My cherished choice, is now a dilemma

How to balance body’s
Rising squeamishness
Against murder mysteries
Where mind stays riveted
To thrown gauntlets, challenges?

Out of sync
Body mind
Roar a war
I bury head in pillow
go back to sleep!
