No On/Off Switch – New Poem (1st Draft)
No on/off switch
Sit with me, please, because
sometimes it is too much
to stay out of the dark corners
when I am doing it alone.
It can be a blessing and a curse
that you have an incomplete
knowledge about me and my promises.
I know the map of my mental health
is written across my face,
and in the way I twist my fingers
when I try and distract myself.
But know that I want to be enough.
I want to be something captivating,
have the laughter as well as the tears,
and pure joy experienced in the moment,
when I am totally unafraid.
