The question that sometimes drives me hazy am I or the others crazy? - Albert Einstein

the light gleaMs in my eyes
iris's of black ringed with yellow
surrounded by blue
i swear i never meant to
i just don't care anymore
the mascara shadows my face
the shadows
just like earwigs on the skin
un-glossed lips are mine
plain nude and bare
a scattering of freckles
little stains on the skin
a dot here a dot there
dishwater hair
if you ring it out the gold would not be there
my face.
it's just me.
that is all its just mE.

the capitals that look random aren't they spell = ME
I've always wondered how other people see me. But this is my self portrait in literature.
