To Live

Updated: Mar 12

i am falling

and i am lying

broken on the shore

like a ship

dashed on the rocks,

like a fairy

who lost their wings


i am smiling

and i am lying

beside you on your couch

like a person

and their best friend,

like a human

and someone

they trust

i am screaming

and i am lying

on the dirt beneath a mountain

like a bird

that tried to leave the nest too soon,

like a doe

that was forgotten

by her mother

i am leaping

and i am lying

on the hard, wooden floor

like a ice skater

that did not make the jump,

like a dancer

that could not learn

how to stand

i am cold
