Day 785: this body

im not used to this kind of insecurity
havent felt this way in my body in months
maybe years
something about it doesnt feel right tonight
i find myself slipping into darkness
weary to cut myself from this ocean
from the moon
but everything about these tides are carrying me under
my body is abandoning me
and i am not
not prepared for this kind of reconstruction
not tonight

this is not a poem
these are just questions
silences im trying to fling out to the heavens
cuz no one here seems to understand
that tonight
i am terrified to be in my own skin
nothing about it fits
not the fear
the discomfort
i just wish
she╩╗d find her way hear
help lift me
to the surface
