I collapse upon myself
a star reborn

I collapse in you
a poison of your own creation

I collapse on the floor
a waking nightmare I can’t escape

I thought you could catch me
I think over and over again

I find myself collapsing
and catch myself

I wish I could collapse on you
in your arms

But I also don’t.
People drop you, you know.

I forget what safety is
there is only awake.

I unclench my muscles
I am only tense I say

How are you

Do you need anything
I don’t know.

Fall Risk,
It’s just November.
