me and november 29. 2013

i am alone

i am hungry and awake

i am swallowing my medication breakfast

i am watching the clock with some half-assed amusement

i am on the couch

i am beneath a blanket

i am watching the back of my eyelids – falling

i am asleep

i am dreaming

i am warm

i am vaguely aware that somewhere, miles away, my phone is ringing for the holidays

i am snoozing and being ungrateful

i am dreaming

i am shaking myself awake

i am certain these are depression shivers


i am disorientated

i am alone

i am not okay with myself

i am looking down at my arms and legs

i am sure they are broken and hanging there with no purpose

i am goddamn sore and it makes me sore to be awake and trying to move

i am eating these medication side effects

i am feeling shitty and not smiling

i am watching the clock again and amusement has been replaced with confusion and sad


i am dragging myself around my apartment

i am alone

i am smoking a cigarette and –

i am back upstairs

i am warm again

i am done

i am ready to crawl back into the mouth of whatever creature i –


i am stopping just long enough to think about how the ending comes when you can no longer swallow the pain and everything that is already there has eaten you up inside and made you hollow and you are too busy crying and too tired – and the sun stops coming up and there are ways that the clouds move over you and i will stop now before i am scattered and vomiting because i can’t keep these ideas together anymore

  1. everyday i am reminded of what an incredibly strong, thoughtful and generous person you are. so many of us, like me, use our illness as an excuse to hide from things, but you dive in deep and then swim all the way back to the top for air, never just sinking to the bottom. if you are swallowed like gepetto, i will be pinocchio – i will find you and i will will fight the giant whale, even if i am only made of wood.
    and we will win the fight, because we have nothing to lose.

    • i don’t even know what to say, except that as much as you are there for me, i will be there for you. any fights that need to happen we can fight together. it will only make both of us stronger.

  2. keep getting it out my friend, I find sometimes I cannot even do that…and when do you see your caregiver next???? Cyber HUGS!!!!!!
