Champion

as my jaw
begins to ache
and my skin
begins to scream
water sprays my face
and leaks down my cheeks
my breathing hitches
halts
stops
my chest won’t stop shaking
I tell her to stop

she asks too many questions

I sit up
and sobs rack the room
it’s pathetic
and I wish it would
stop
go
leave me alone
my mother’s voice
breathe
out through the mouth
in through the nose

“I don’t think I can do this”

being here
I can’t think
but she knows me
knows who I am
bring me down
back
back
bring me confidence
remind me who I am

“if I can live through this
I can do anything”
