I watched the words fall from her  lips
The reminder that there are elements out of my control
Ripping myself from the inside out
Shredding my strength into shards of glass

They poke me
A jab around the head where I no longer feel 'there'
I am myself and yet I see the girl across from me 
Facing me through the fogged up window

You're trying she taunts
Her silent form mocking empathy

Just breathe
take a deep breath...
in and out, in and out

And soon she disappears
Fading into the brightness of the skyline ahead
My senses returning to where they belong
