86.

Can I keep on like this?
Would I rather be balanced, whole
than up-and-down, haunted
by alternating obsessions

A head filled up with numbers
credit cards, near-lovers
birthdays, of dates I’ll miss
of heights and weights and countries

Would I rather flatline
than be disastrously, obsessively
worthless

  1. (Hugs). I hope things sort themselves out for you, that you find peace and calm and find a place where you are happy.

  2. Feeling/being… Maybe not the same thing? Maybe it’s okay to feel worthless, but that doesn’t mean we are? Right? Keep sharing. -TJ
