A poem I wrote about mental health which I posted on Instagram at @moonwakewords. Hope you enjoy <3

spill open

she counts her breaths

she counts her breaths and the steps she takes

she counts her breaths and the steps she takes and the distance to the garden

she counts her breaths and the steps she takes and the distance to the garden and back

she counts her breaths and the steps she takes and the distance to the garden and back and how long it takes for the sun

she counts her breaths and the steps she takes and the distance to the garden and back and how long it takes for the sun to wake up

and how many buildings leer at her

and how many buildings leer at her from the window

and how many buildings leer at her from the window and the cracks in the pavement with roots aching to burst out

and how many buildings leer at her from the window and the cracks in the pavement with roots aching to burst out and lines in the palm of her hand

and how many buildings leer at her from the window and the cracks in the pavement with roots aching to burst out and lines in the palm of her hand as if they could speak her future

and how many ribs cave in towards her touch

and how many ribs cave in towards her touch when she runs her finger past them

and how many ribs cave in towards her touch when she runs her finger past them and the countless lies she has told when they ask her

and how many ribs cave in towards her touch when she runs her finger past them and the countless lies she has told when they ask her how her day is going

when all she feels is as if her guts are trying to

when all she feels is as if her guts are trying to spill open

when all she feels is as if her guts are trying to spill open with guilt because of the words

when all she feels is as if her guts are trying to spill open with guilt because of the words she does not say.

she does not say.
