Thinking & Breathing (Part 1), a poem by Drem

Written September 8, 2015

“Thinking about my life,

my fate

that I feel powerless to

and a victim

already

due to

my projected

trajectory

and my past

that I feel shattered by

and a victim of

by hurtful men

and hurtful hands

makes me drown in myself nightly.

And all the memories I have

that I remember

of the future I thought I could obtain

to erase the sins

done to me

makes it hard.

Really hard.

So much so

I often can’t breathe

even though

the air is there

all around me.

I can feel it

on my skin

but I can’t  take it in

or see it.

I’m so lost

sitting right

in my own bed.
