Still

by Mimi   Sep 28, 2020


I am still hurting and
I am still lying about it
There is no soft way
To say that
Sometimes
I forget to breathe
So I skip that and
Ask what's for dinner instead
I am still learning
How to do the easy things
Like eat
When I'm hungry
And leave my bed every day
I am still learning
To twist my tongue around words
That resemble the truth
I am still
Falling asleep
With hope suffocating
Between my clasped fingers
I am still falling in love
With the moon
I am still stepping
Around broken glass and
Thinking
That counts as strength
I am still
Hoping
The world ends before we do
