its been suggested
i get some sleep
before i become
an outside witness
of my own reality
too capable to fall
they say
i answer too quickly
spiralling downward headfirst
masquerading in my own body
i lie awake
wondering who i really am
the old case
of teenage angst
you've heard this already
mascara bleeding and such
the story has been written
and the pages are turning
as i close my eyes
and go to sleep
