This is not myself

February 20, 2014 § Leave a comment

You are not in love with me
you are in love with her,

she who speaks through my vocal cords
moves distances by my legs and feet
kisses you with my lips
and strokes my hand over your hair.

You are not in love with me,
you are in love with
the sentences she forms
and the way she says them,

You have not seen me cry
or boil at the sound of noises
or cringe at the sight of slovenliness
or laugh at the ignorant.

I am but a persona
that has been designed
to satisfy your perception,

you only see so much
and claim to know me
when even I,
do not know myself.
