Drowning in the shallows.
Spitting on light beams.
Screaming before looking.
Refusing to switch the light on, scramble in empty darkness.
Repudiate dreams, repulsed by the nightmares that fill their space.
Add petrol to flames, cry when they burn you.
Latch onto airless space, wail when it suffocates you.
Deny your hand is burning, admonish the blister.
Throw stones at the mirror, expect others not to.

I use writing as an outlet to understand the world around me. Whether it's through reading the writing of other people or letting my own words out, I feel they bring light to areas that we need to see in order to change and grow.
