My body feels like

When you’re screaming

And no one can hear you.

It feels like

Floating in a stranger’s backyard pool

As heavy bricks laid upon you

Take you down slowly to the bottom.

It is like

Going to bed fearful

Of your door opening

As a 10-year-old.

My body feels like

Misery and volcanoes and hopelessness.
