To Be Blue In This Red

By Arden Suvalle

We’re so numb

I feel so dumb

You seem so distraught

I remember what I was taught

Stop, drop, and roll

But it’s out of control

I could just sit here

And pretend like there’s no fear

I don’t feel much

Not the stuff surrounding and such

If I had more words

I’d say them

But for some reason

I don’t

And I’ve stopped wishing

And now all I hear

Is my own breath

Which direction do I steer

I’ve grazed the surface

Only get pushed back again

I’m trying my hardest

I’m watching the end begin

I’m so blue

In this red

It’s so true

Now how do I get out of this bed?
