Something Like That

My mother says I need to get out more

stop confining myself in the space

of four white walls

mistaken comfort

but this is what I call safe.

Bad Mind

Trying to take refuge in a body
waring itself to live
with a mind getting too comfortable with death
your tongue clutching onto survival.

?

Sitting in empty

thinking how I just

want to be enough

for you,  a place to call

whole.
