walking away.

when you walk
the thoughts
in your head
fall down your body
and into your feet
(that’s science).
they go into your shoulders
then deep in your chest
they’ll seek out your heart
but quickly move on
straight to your stomach
and in to your legs
they’ll try make you fall
(they can’t. they’re just thoughts).
Your thighs.
Your knees.
Your calves.
The tips of your toes
And under your soles.
before you know it,
they are gone.
Walked all over
and left behind.
