Sit

I can’t sit still
I can’t sit still for you.
I can’t sit still for you to be who
You want me to
That would not be me
Whoever I am
Whoever I am is not me
Whoever I am is not me that you see
That would not be me.
That is what you look at
What you look at
What you look at is not me
What you look at is not me in the mirror
Stripped of all her naked glory
Standing still
The way I feel
The numbness is
The numbness is darkness
The numbness is darkness swallowing me
In my silence.
In my silence I am free
In my silence I am me.
In my silence I am
In my silence
In my
Me.
