Crash and burn

To walk into

the house on fire

knowing too well

it will eat me alive


Not to run

but to sit

in the fear

that lives in me


Don't take up space

Stay away

from the spotlight

Stay safe


To jump

into the ocean

and roll

with the tide


Rock bottom

has a sinkhole

that drags me

deeper still


Being able to swim

won't keep me

from drowning face down

in a puddle of rain
