I got caught up in loving something
That would never love me back.
I was thrashed under pressure
Of perfectionistic expectations,
And choked on the remnants of
What little oxygen I had left.

Throw me to the riptide-
Let the sharks come and prey!
Watch them circle in,
While the leeches suck the life
From my brain.

And I’ll continue to wander alone…
Until my body winds up
