Navigating My Triggers

I am a runner. Nope, not the running shoes, heavy breathing and sweaty running runner. The I-no-longer-feel-happy-safe-settled-or-off running from relationships like a track and field athlete.

Unanchored

Restless and floating,A square piece in a round hole.So many circling thoughts,With the crushing realization of no one to moor me,There are parts of me in so many places,I don’t know what I have left for myself,Who am I, except neither here nor there?In the middle,Dancing between what I want and what others want,Following the…
