Distant (#63457)

It is possible I am pushing through solid rock… I am such a long way in I see no way through, and no space; everything is close to my face, and everything close to my face is stone. -Ranier Maria Rilke, quoted in Thriving Through Crisis: Turn Tragedy and Trauma into Growth and Change by Bill O’Hanlon

  2. Ellen Best says:

    I am heavy, unwieldy and slow
    Words are slurred, tempretures low.
    people speak at me but I can’t hear,
    nothing but noise forcing in my ear.

    Breathing is as if drinking through a seive
    i have a life I can’t live.
    Hurt what is that? Cut myself to feel
    But nothing seems real.

    I pop a pill to wake me, lift me up make me real,
    Is this it? This is why I’m here you want me to feel.
    I force a pill down each morning religiously I do,
    Then one day,I, may feel just like you.
