This is a train wreck. I'm a train wreck. I want it to stop.
Sometimes my head doesn't stop. I go from subject to subject. With each bounce I feel less in control.
I start looking for something to change that will make all the difference.
My head doesn't stop. I laugh to myself, sometimes out loud. I think I might be crazy.
I'm standing on the tracks watching a train move slow for a train.  it's coming right at me, carrying dark clusters of desperation. I either can't move or don't want to. When it finally decides it's dragged out the inevitable long enough, it fills my lungs with fuel ready to burn, and wraps metal around me like a snake in a horror flick.
I don't resist.

About Faith

SUNDRIP – Art for Life is a site that expresses in every media possible an intimate look into the life of a person living with major trauma. The issues addressed in art and writing include Dissociative Identity Disorder, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Lupus and CRSD. Despite these issues, I intend to move forward, through and out with honor, grace and creativity.

No need to feel nervous, comment if you'd like.
