Steady your breath.
It’s sharp I know.
Nothing new to you.
Today I lost trust in the last person I believed I could depend on.
My life has been a series of smiles that slowly diminish into frowns dripping in tears.
I had to ground myself.
“Shed all that no longer serves you.”
I am so tired.
I miss my imaginary world.
Where I could shape my perception as I pleased.
This reality is stark and empty.
Full of vast expansions of silence.
I should have walked.
I should have stayed.
I should have listened, screamed, known, anything but this.
It’s as if towers of glass are shattering all around me.
I saw it distorted.
But I knew.
May the universe look kindly upon me.
I am loved.
I am strong.
I am enough.
