Your brain is your safety blanket lit by projector.

You see yourself, a rose nuzzled in your face,

the sun caressing your neck as

a sweet breeze and scented trees

assure you that there is something



worth living for. 


then it all goes icy

Like the frost on a roadside memorial.

Like the way your mother glared at you,

or the way your father’s smile drops.

The breeze turns harsh, foul, cacophonous.

you’re back home, the scent not one of lavender,

but of self-loathing.

Dive back into your imagined oasis!


Chrysanthemums and cherry blossoms smile so wide

And provide the daydreams in which you’ll hide.

I hope that if anyone relates to this, they realize that help is there, and they they are loved.
