the wall/ forward

I got up,
turned around,

    I took a step,
    followed by another,

I moved through to room,
finding the strength,
not to fall

    I still hadn’t eaten,
    my shaking hands,
    losing touch

I wanted to fall,
crash into the carpet,

    Maybe someone would notice,
    that I wasn’t okay,
    far from

I leaned to the wall,
searched for balance,
stood still

    I was exhausted,
    out of breath,

I didn’t fall
I didn’t let myself fall

I would not fall before I have started
the horizon was still in sight
