today, I ponder giving up these words. I've given up a lot this week and there may be more to come. I need space to breathe.
because I'm not breathing again and I can't hear the reminders through my sobbing
It was supposed to be an easier day, more focused, but it's not.
in between writing words, I sob and in between sobbing, I am agitated and angry
i retreat to the hammock, to read, to think, to listen to the birds and the outdoor sounds, to nap. I want the magical shift. It doesn't happen.
this afternoons anxiety and anger is taken out on the leaves. I don't know what to do with all these leaves. and I don't know what to do with this yard.
and the logs tumble out of the stand and I tumble onto the ground. I am supposed to be invincible. and I've never felt invincible.
I've always felt wounded and needy and incompetent. I wear layers of masks to get through the day, through my life.
where are the bandaids that are supposed to make everything feel better? I need those.
