Feelings of Flight- Feb 11, 2017
I’m waging a war that not many can see
And the pain that’s inside is obliterating me.
They say its a phase, that it’s all in my head.
They are the reason I feel that I’m better off dead.
I know that they love me,
I know that they care,
But what is left of me but just one blank stare
The feelings are slipping away from myself
And all I can feel is that moment of stealth
As my mind starts to wander
My mind starts to roam
Until that one graceful moment where I know I’m not home.
My body is there and it’s working so hard.
It’s making the bed, washing the car.
But it isn’t me that’s within that shell.
I’ve broken out so I can look for the bell.
The bell that is ringing so loud in my head.
The feeling I know that it means I should dread.
Dread that my life is slipping right through.
Through my fingers and through time
And through and through and through.
I know that time is passing but I don’t know how long
Is it a day, an hour, or just one long song?
And now that I am getting tired,
It’s best to descend.
Descend back to earth where my body remains.
My body and mind connect again
And in that moment, I know that once again.
I’ve disassociated a lot and my life is a mess.
But only because of the imminent stress.
Paying bills, going to work, and dreaming of school.
Knowing that two are all I’m able to do.
That feeling of missing out on an education is sad
But reality knows that at least you can be glad.
Glad that you’re living at all.
Even though life just makes you feel really small.
