Bleeding Time

Searching for myself at the bottom of the ocean

My sense of self threatens to dissolve. I go visit someone and try to keep myself together. Can they see I’m close to falling apart, piece by piece by piece?

Back home, on my own, falling apart feels fantastic. I spend the whole day on the sofa and remember myself as the lushious deep and feeling being I always was.
