And I try,
for I keep telling myself this is normal,
this yearning for something mundane,
I keep telling myself,
something everyone has to go through,
and I don’t have a choice,
it’s the cycle I was born into,
it seems to get too much.
You feel it in your core,
it’s nullifying the efforts that you put years into,
the flooding impregnating the walls that you built up around you,
turning down every confrontation,
but all it took,
and all it really takes,
to demolish that town,
is a flood,
an earthquake of emotion,
to bring them crumbling down.
in the turmoil you went through,
into numbing yourself so much that you can’t even feel the fire inside scorching you,
it’s hot and it burns,
but you’re numb,
so it works.
you keep going.
Life throws what it does at you,
and you keep swimming,
at the edge of the shallow side,
not letting yourself wander too far,
for you know you might drown,
so you stay with the tamer of the tide,
you don’t take risks.
What feels like decades of wondering why,
you still try to live in the shade of the burning flames inside,
a silhouette in the dark,
making people look twice,
not stepping out,
from where you want to hide…
You don’t take chances,
because you’re scared,
and you have a safety net,
just in case.
Looking around from behind the doorframe,
letting your consciousness slowly die,
you’re wary of the flames,
for they may be getting too high,
your hand on the nozzle,
you’ve got a fire extinguisher nearby.
Holding your breath,
as you count to five…
you choose to put out the fire,
that’s keeping you alive.
