Reflections in a Mirror

Mirror, mirror, faded glass: What’s that I see? It’s me. I’m lonely and fearful; A mouse tiny, insignificant; Overlooked, unseen, unnoticed. I’ll never be good enough… ….will I? Mirror, mirror, painted glass: What’s that I see? It’s me. I’m manipulated and worthless; A mangy dog begging for attention; Kicked, bruised, eating my own vomit. I’ll […]

No Escape

Who am I really? Can somebody tell me? It’s dark in here Smoke and screams Is that me? Something pierced my eyes My cheeks are wet This tongue is coated, swollen Someone stop that damn buzzing! Grasping to understand What was my name? Didn’t I have one once? It began with Wretched Why am I […]

Small Moments

It’s in those quiet moments when you wrap your arms around me from behind and pull me in closer as if that were possible or when you lay kisses on my eyelids and breathe in deep our lingering scent, memorizing every nuance. It’s when you hold me so tight like you never want to let […]
