Every single second runs and runs and flies and I can’t keep up.
Every word sounds clunky and bumpy and these sentences don’t form how they feel and I just don’t know how to say it.
My brain soars at one hundred and one miles per hour and this is unfiltered. This is me.
I don’t know how to deal with it. It has been over 700 days since I’ve last been flying. Since the ground met my feet. Since these drugs have grounded me.
I have been saved. And now I have to save myself.
I had forgotten how fast and unbearable that everything could be. How I can crash and burn and crash once again before anything even happens.
My heart beats so, so ungodly loud and with every beat I swear I can’t do it again. It beats and my thoughts pound and rattle through my ribcage, and I feel gone from my skin. From myself.
When my thoughts fly and sail through the darkest night and this feels like before. This is when all the bad things happen. And life crumbles away.
Yet this is good and this is progress and this is what I want, right?
I am here. I am sprinting. I am still.
