The Process

  1. The process of cracking up
    is not so simple
    A breakdown does not happen
    in one fell swoop
    One does not so easily fall,
    but descends in distinct minute measure
    One bit at a time
    as one more aspect disappears,
    replaced by self-doubt and fears
    feelings of failure,
    lack of a savior
    Like the bottom has dropped out
    And there is nowhere to land,
    no place,
    only space,
    so Down is endless,
    a backwards spiral staircase
    while waiting for another “and”
    but there are none to be had
    Where asking for help is admitting defeat;
    The last place one wants to retreat to
    because it’s simply terrifying
    to admit to yourself
    that your mind is dying…
