I Melt Down

I do not feel,

I melt down.

And the heat it generates

Makes me sweat

All over my face and body.

 

It slowly pools beneath me,

cleansing the toxins and

soaking through the mattress –

dripping on the slanted floor.

 

It seeps outside towards the horizon

out my cracked window onto the earth.

Another nighttime implosion;

a penance to nature

for reckless dreamtime emoting.

 

I try to capture them.

Show up to the last day of school

Or work an endless shift,

But instead go nowhere,

just trip up and

awake into consciousness.

 

I do not emit

this force field

softy glowing and magnetic

for the sake of masking –

it shields from a recessive condition

of external disconnection

that is regressing.

 

This is me,

I do not feel like you do.

I melt

way down.
