On an Autumn evening as I was out walking with our dog , I watched the sunset over the mountaim of Slievenamon, county Tipperary in the distance.

My mind was clear as I was just enjoying the view.

I have been looking for a way to describe the feeling I had and found the following Poem .

The Aftermath

Rebecca Dobson

The final fragments of my shattered
mind slip into place
Random thoughts and jagged

I disintegrate from the outside inwards
slightly blurred
and I flutter inside
(excited child) , I feel hollow and empty and a
warmth, and my nose is raw
and crystals gather at my nostrils

Electric, almost static
I float and fumble
and agitations tickle my spine and my scalp
Sniff and cough, they grate against my brain
and scratch discomfort into my buzz;
I float on higher plane
and feel conscious, feel able.

I talk with a wired mouth
and words are laborious and stick to my lips
Suspended in wakefulness I skip work
and relish in my openness of mind
and free thought
and I think I am happy
