My truth. My life.



I find myself drowning in the tainted water of life.

I feel as if I have been exposed on a circus stage,

 hanging by a suspended ring with one hand.

I am fading.



For Trifecta:

On now to this weekend’s Trifextra challenge.  This weekend we are giving you
three words and asking for you to give us back another thirty of your own,
making a grand total of thirty-three words.

Your words to work with
