I feel like I’m floating
suspended in a cold substance
hundreds of feet above the earth
I am looking down
I can see my “life” below me
from here everything seems small
My presence in your life is not really me
it’s just the shadow that I am casting down
on what used to be my life
I can only go higher
and even if I wanted to
I can never go back down ever again.
Please know that I am not here by choice.
