I have spent
most of my life holding my breath
above the waves,
just in case
they break me down
mid-scream.

And I have spent
most of my life drowning in love
for hearts too full to home me,
propping myself up with cardboard
promises and sorry tarpaulins.

And I have spent
most of my life living for other
people; a doormat for woes and
loneliness; a spare body in their
bed at night.

Now,
I say no more.
