The me that you know
smiles and laughs
when deep inside
she feels nothing

tick tick tick

The me that you know
functions through life
when deep within
she’s falling apart


The me that you know
fights every day
through a pain
most cannot fathom


The me that you know
has become a machine
because it’s the only way
she can survive

    I relate completely, Jinxie. As of Feb 8, 2014 I am functioning to tie up loose ends before I get out of here. When every single thing I’ve ever created, collected because it was really special–and then held onto to give to others, or been given as a gift–not to mention all my everyday items for the business and home, which was in storage between permanent residences–was auctioned off, I have ceased to live. My soul was auctioned off that day. 400 sq ft packed of preciousness since I was a baby. All the art I’ve ever created, thousands of photographs. thump thump…thump thump…thump

    Superb poetry, Jinxie, and I love the eye.
