At times I feel disconnected from reality.

Like dandelion seeds being scattered and tossed along the currents of May’s winds.
Never landing and rooting myself into the earth’s luscious soil.
Dust on a monarch butterfly’s wings.
Helping it fly but never growing on my own wings.
I inhale the soot left behind from the smoldering ashes produced by the bridges I burned.
Every breathe I intake hurts.
Air feels like razors against my lungs, I guess even they find release in cutting.
