Overwhelmed

Laying down on my bed, staring up. Too hard to get up and move. Feeling crushed by the loneliness. Even the quiet is too overwhelming. Paralyzed by choice. Paralyzed by the demons in my sleep.

Wrapping my arms around myselfTrying to keep all the pieces together.The pressureThe only thing keeping me whole.Teeth clenched and lip closed.Worried I’ll open my mouth and it will all spill out.

Stillness

Still doing the best I can.Still writing.Still looking for my purpose in life.Still appreciate everything my readers do for me.Still glad you are here. Still wearing my mask and social distancing.Still hoping that things will get better.Still trying to be a better person than I was yesterday.Still here.Still enough.
