I am.

October 26, 2010
I am from a house
on the corner of two streets
that don't really matter,
where I spend my nights looking in a mirror, discovering dusty pieces of myself.

I am from quick sketches,
poems that really aren't that good.
Why can't I be more like him? Like her?

I am from old books.
A safe and familiar refuge
away from all the insanity
that is
Myself.

I am from Uncertainty, Timidity,
Hesitation, Fear of Rejection;
Whittling me into a frail, careful creature.
