A Distraction

Of recent, I am worried,
haunted by thoughts
as what would happen?

if the cushion is left
uncovered, if the
lawn is not mowed.

I turn desperate,
deliberate and despair
of these ordinary ones

mostly in the nights,
I remain sleepless,
sit up and straighten often.

An hallucination, as it seems
acts with a fervour
making me a despondent.

Insignificant and immaterial
they cause a conflict in my mind,
endangering peace and happiness.
