if i stumble and fall

forgive me

for I am clumsy.

if it becomes hard to draw breath

forgive me

for i am suffocating.

if i become devoured by fear

that wraps around and

diminishes me

that wraps around my voice and

muffles it

that around my emotions and

dulls them

to an unrecognisable, shadowed, monochrome gray

which terrifies me —

forgive me

for i have been consumed

deeply suspended beneath my fears insatiable appetite.
