flushed

sometimes I feel spiderwebs
tracing along my arms, the thread
like a hair prickling along my skin

pulling me to you

friendship is a simple word
boundaries are more complicated
wondering where the edge is

wondering how to comfort

pushing me to the edge then
pulling me back, so gently
with my mind a whirlpool

falling in slowly, slowly

maybe I’ve already fallen in
sinking to the bottom
whirling into the drains

how can I undo

someday I’ll make my mind up
choose the path of least resistance
release & rewind

bring me back to you
