We Were Never Safe

‘We’re not safe we were never safe’

I mutter psychotically

‘He’s here why is he always here?’

My knees are crushing my ribs

‘He knows he knows I know’

I am now soused in fear


‘Was that? No no it wasn’t just breath’

Inhale exhale inhale exhale

‘I’m good I’m safe I’m perfectly-‘


‘Ah shit oh god it’s him I know it’s him’

Back and forth back and forth

‘We’re not safe we were never-‘

The door busts open

‘Please please don’t I’m sorry! I’m-‘
