that feeling of falling apart

"I didn't even know what reality was... then these lines came into my head and something said don't stop writing. I started to write my lines, they're called poems but in reality they are lines for me to hold onto, my hanging-on lines, it was real to me, it was a parting gift from Tina. Whatever happens just follow the writing and I might be able to find some kind of center. Whatever my future is... to see how long I get to participate... she gave me the lines to follow... so I won't fall completely... that feeling of falling apart, it doesn't go away."

- John Trudell, from the 2005 Heather Rae documentary, "Trudell."
