I used to dance

I used to dance
Everyday
Now I only dream
I envisage the movements

 Falling Into a trance
Wishing I could move that way

 My motions making me gleam

I no longer dance

ON THE STREET

When you live on the street,
You've got to plan your work and work your fucking plan.
Deals to make, people to meet
Too make money you do anything you can.

Pawn your phone, sell some drugs
Everyday, survival is a battle
People think we're...

I feel for you... It is a very selfish act and the sufferer rarely thinks about who they are leaving behind and what they have to go through and recover from... At the time you only think about yourself as you feel so low... But now I give thought to the loved ones I would have left behind. I have realised this by looking at how supportive my loved ones and professionals are investing so much time and love to help me recover mentally and physically. I'm glad you have been able to reconnect
