The Flatline

Terms like "high" and "low" imply that only one at a time will slide, but that couldn't be farther from the case.

I look inside of every sigh that escaped my fissured lips and I know that I may not ever get to be doing better than getting by because I--

I am a fly on the wall of my own dilapidated life.

I am the hunger of a butterknife.

Living life doesn't make me alive no--

not as much as crimson trickles, a perfect sight for tired eyes.

That's a great poem but it worries me and I hope that you are safe. Please remember that you did nothing wrong - only what you had to in order to get out of a bad situation alive and physically unharmed. You had a lot of courage. You are a survivor.

Please call and get some help. rainn.org 1-800-656-HOPE.
