on my own

other things are going around my head
other than stress
other than depression
other than mania
other than earth shattering solitude

you are in there with me
you are breaking up all my patterns
you are turning on lights that I thought were broken
you are holding my hand and leading me through the debris
you are showing me the power I have within

you disintegrate
I realize that you were never here
I have done all of this on my own
