It felt right.
Not to need.
A person.
Our own person.
Both the rescuer
And the rescuee.
One person.
Same person?
What if?
Both quit?
No person.
It might still
Feel right.


“It is one thing to lose people you love. It is another to lose yourself. That is a greater loss.”

  1. I’ve dealt with major depression all my life. This poem doesn’t just speak to me, it shouts at me. It’s so relatable. And the accompanying quote is spot-on. That sense of losing oneself is terrifying. What a profound piece of poetry this is, Aaysid. You’ve definitely got a magic touch. 🙂

  2. I can so identify with your words here, Aaysid. I’ve been to that place in the past where I felt I had completely lost all sense of myself. It was really frightening. I think your quote is spot on. – It’s tough enough to lose another person, but when you lose yourself, it is so much harder and getting yourself back is such a struggle. I’m not sure whether you wrote this profound poem because you are feeling this way, but I do hope you are okay, and if this is about you, that you start to feel more positive very soon. Sending love Xx 🤍.

    P.S. I’m sorry I’ve been absent from your blog recently. I’ve been in London protesting about the lack of action our government is taking against the climate emergency. It’s been a very intense but worthwhile time. I hope to be able to read your posts more regularly now that I’m back. Xx
