Second attempts

This is my first real try at writing. A lot of this has been in my head for a while but as part of a larger second attempt i thought i would try something new, actually writing them down. Read them if you like, or don't, i won't mind either way.


4. slip

I never understood why people described the spiral as drowning

Sinking beneath waves 

As  if its an ocean that you can swim 

Keep going and eventually you'll escape  


It was never like that for me   


It was always on the edge of my consciousness 

Waiting for me to stumble, to slip

Not to watery depths

But to comfort, the familiar and easy  


And it happened

In the end it always does, over and over

The mind gives in and the body follows

Tracing lines i've imagined thousands of times 

A different kind of coping with creation 

Not as innocent as the others  


And so i slipped

Embraced what i tried so hard to ignore 

And it hurt, it was like a fire, raging through my veins and drawing scars across my skin 

But it also felt free

I guess there are some things a person cannot bear to leave behind.
