it takes every last bit of you to keep your balance
and not do something self destructive.
I'm not talking about willpower, I'm talking about
I'm not sure how to describe it.
It's like the part of you that wants to live,
the part of you that is committed to not smoking,
is connected by only the most slender of threads to
the part of you driving the car,
making the decisions.
Sometimes you just hang in there,
a minute at a time.
You ask for help, but you know
if you choose to
you can turn away from that pretty easily,
or even accidentally
not sliding backwards
counts as moving forwards.
Sometimes not actively trying to die is
Sometimes holding your ground
is a fragile miracle.
