"You are the universe expressing itself as human for a little while." -Eckhart Tolle

My eyes drifted up from the carved meat
on my plate
to the skin and bones across from me
it ached
a part of me sank
and I shrunk back down in my seat
face blank
he smiled slyly
and offered me kindly
the peas
but I wanted to say
stop trying to please me
it’s not nice to tease me
don’t let me believe
that this is you now
that you won’t leave now
because I don’t know how
I would deal with the pain
if you decide to gamble with your life again.

The author's comments:
I wrote this about what it was like to have this sinking feeling and to not be able to talk about the elephant in the room, and about the guilt I felt for not bringing it up, because it resulted in an escape from a mental hospital.
