quitting before failing

I’ve never failed at anything…
because I’ve always quit before
the failing ensues.

My relationships haven’t failed,
I quit them.
My careers haven’t failed,
I gave up on them.

I quit my success.
I quit my income.
I quit my school.
I quit my sobriety.

And I am quitting this fucking poem,
all for you,
my forever,
my love,
my fear of failing.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
