Titanic

Sometimes
my heart is a sinking ship.
The pull of the dark water
is so irresistible,
how can I turn away?

I don’t know how to be loved.
The moment compassion finds me,
my stomach tightens,
my heart races,
“don’t screw it up this time.”

But it’s hard to love
someone who sabotages themselves
daily.

And so I sink
into the cold dark water,
where I’ve never felt more alone,
more at home.
