"You know my name, not my story."


standing and staring
seeing and blinking.
the person i see
can it really be me?
she stares and wonders
as i stare and think.
is it the same
is it weak.
the person i see
sees me too.
stares and wonders.
she reaches out
and so do i.
the person i am seeing
she laughs then cries.
i tilt my head
she does too.
i reach out and touch
so does she.
the only difference
is i leave smudges
while she keeps
trying to reach me

This piece was inspired by the thoughts I have of myself and how I see myself. Sometimes I feel like who I am isn'y exactly who I want to be.
