A Calm

I feel a calm inside today,
and it feels uncomfortable.
Like the calm before
the storm.
Like I should be gearing
up for battle.
What is this?
Maybe it’s the calm after
the storm.
I tell myself it’s okay
to feel it.
I know it’s not normal.
Enjoy it.
Be grateful.
But it’s weird —-
How long will it last?
Can it last forever?
