Until I slip away

You keep yourself

Just beyond my reach

When you are ready

You pull me down below

Drown me in water

Or you throw me sideways

Through the window

With all the shards of glass

And the water I cannot swallow

You torture me until I slip away

  1. Something in me very much relates to this poem. It might be the part which clings to hopes, even when they are false. Discovering that these hopes are unreal is overwhelmingly disappointing (to the point where I feel that I am drowning) at times, and other times I am shocked–as you described, as if thrown through glass. Once the part of me that hopes has been “tortured” enough, it ceases to believe–disappears (slips away).
