Hello you're back.
Do I hug you. Do I wave to you.
Do I hide again. Do I wipe my tears away.
You're getting closer, your presence is growing more and more intense.
I try to sleep peacefully at night but then I open my eyes and you're smothering me with my pillow. I inhaled every tear that I cried into it the night before when I tried to drown myself asleep.
I'm clawing the edges of my bed trying to escape the grasp you have on my throat
but not for long because you're there at work, you're at college, you live in my house
You live in my mind and you never leave and I'm scared you never will
