Say Something…

Say Something…

I’m not giving up on you
I’m just crawling back
Into my body
I need to take a rest from
All your grandeur
I need to take a break from
The pressure to be the
Me you have turned me into

Say something…

I’m coming back to your
Deafening personality
To be ripped from my bones
As a lump of putty
So easily shaped into
Any identity
You desire me to be

Say Something…

I’m trying to find you
My memory has obscured
Who I’m looking for
The gentle and kind and
Compassionate one isn’t
You any more, and I am
Gradually giving up on you

Say Something…

I am quickly giving up on me

This was inspired/influenced by Say Something {a poem} over at “The Power of Silence.”  Thank you Mariann Martland for creating the way you do.
