Safe In the Moment

* A fictional narrative*

I wanted to be
Alone.
To the end of the dock,
That’s my throne.

A place where I am safe
From
Everything and everyone,
God I feel so numb.

I looked out to to the
Horizon
This is the world
That i am going to die in

I stared out across the
Water
How could my mom react like that
To her own daughter

The sun then
Set
I dipped my toes into the lake
With regret

How did this happen to
Me
Out of all lifes games, I got
The worst referee

I should’ve kept my mouth
Shut
I should have taken it back
When she said what

I brought my head to my
Knees
Choking on tears, my chest
Tightened and I started to wheeze.

I didn’t do anything
Wrong
Why does she believe that
I don’t belong

She has always been so
Supportive
My world now is
So contorted

I shouldn’t have told her I am
Gay
She said not her kid
No way
