2 years

I can subsist but barely.
Coexisting is easy when I'm standing straight, ignoring the depthless circle hovering in mid air. I can walk down the halls and feel my feet pressing into the outline of the footsteps left before and pretend to fill them exactly.
I have walked where they have walked and so we are the same.
I can laugh and smile and believe. I can peel back the artificial life and climb into its skin, become the main character.

  1. The form of words are perfect. "Coexisting is easy when I'm standing straight, ignoring the depthless circle hovering in mid air." is my favorite sentence.

  2. You have SUCH a way with words.

    I adored: "the outline of the footsteps left before and pretend to fill them exactly." I'm not sure why it just really stuck.
