Split in Two

The way I hide away, 
to remove myself, from myself, 
from my other self, 
the one that overthinks, 
to remain in motion, 
without hindrance or hesitation, 
because she doesn’t want to 
think of how disorganized, 
an absolute wreck, she is  
trying to keep it all together. 

She exhausts herself; gives 
too much to others until 
burnout. She keeps up with 
self-care, responsibilities, 
other duties but she knows 
it’s just a matter of time 
until it all blows. 

She breathes to steady the 
heartbeat; in, out, in, out. 
Another thing she tries 
to control but she knows 
it’s only a matter of time 
until it too takes 
it’s last toll.
