more than I am

some times
I think that I am more
than I am
forever moving
running away
seeking shelter from things
that I cannot see
but feel

diving further
into uncertainty
because the only thing
that I know for sure
suffocates
upon itself

and I forget to breathe
because if I remembered
to pause
and inhale slowly
I would stumble
and tumble through all the cracks
that opened up beneath my steps
even when I thought
even when
I thought
the ground was solid

so I do not breathe
no pause to hold
keep forward
mirrors over cracks
I am more than
I am
I think
