Mental Health

It’s happening again
The ground opens up and starts to cave in

Tears streak the pillowcase and the fog is heavy
Please get up
I’m begging you to write it down , run away 
Scream at the top of your lungs
Just please move
Why don’t I put up a better fight ?

Sinking in
Deja vu
Or is it existential dread?
The comforter becomes a thick layer of earth
Sprouting blades of grass above me as
I fade back into nothing
And wait for the flowers to bloom again
