It’ll always come back to how my own life was a backdrop to your pain

It’s hard to be that friend. It’s ok to walk away to save your own sanity, when you are not equipped to handle their own demons and you have your own. I’ve been called selfish but i also must survive and navigate days when I don’t want to be alive.

we were candles burning

in a bottle with our

oxygen burning off

almost felt like breathing

but there
is no axis
to this body/mind disconnect

you ask what I want-
with a torque around my neck

friction and celestial bodies
there is always
the sea & mermaids
