your daughter/son

i know
you’re on the brink
on the edge,
close to losing it,
drowning in your tears.
the only reason you know
you’re still alive
is because your heart is
squeezing so tight in your chest
you can’t breathe.

you know she’s out there.

terrified.

you know he’s out there.

terrifying.
