I am the silent sobs at night,

Just my pillow and I. 

I am also

uproarious laughter,

a scintillating smile,

falling autumn leaves

the last one that stays there


I am a beautiful mess, 

the conflict of the mind, 

These demons I hide,

I am someone’s something 

but I am also my me.

I am the girl in the mirror,  

this curvature of mine 

the atoms and the void 

and the broken girl


I am me.

Wholly solely,
