In-Between

Being in-between.

No home.

No space of your own.

You try to choke back

everything that you need,

the way you choke back water

as you drown.

The feeling of panic

surrounding your body,

taking the form of the water

around you

until the depths of the ocean floor.

Being in-between.

No home.

No space of your own.

How much further can you go?

How much longer can you hold onto consciousness?

You’re flailing

thrashing

fighting to get to the surface.

You can make it.
