I Am…

I Am… Video

I am scar tissue

Skin held together

By needle point and glue

 

I am a head full

Of voices who contend

Shouting and whispers

 

I am contradictions

My own vilifications

Contentment’s unbound

 

I am your acceptance

Arms stretched wide

Careful not to let go

 

I am the quiet one

Resentful of you

Anxiety overload

 

I am the loud vexatious one

Hiding behind words

That make no sense

 

I am scar tissue

Not broken bones

Unbidden and unessential

 

I am a dark cloud

Can’t shake it off

Like the black dog

 

I am fighting with myself

Heartstrings pulling one way

Threads of sense the other

 

I am pain

Searing hot, internal

Sharp cold relentless

***********************************************************************

I am the soft touch

Gentle to the skin

Easy to manipulate

 

I am burning lungs

Top speed 70%

Current speed 45%

 

I am the struggle for air

Rattling lungs

Crushing my chest

 

I am the sounds of silence

Clock ticking, tap dripping

White noise in your ears

 

I am whatever you want me to be

Patiently waiting

No, I’m not

 

I am butterflies

Crawling from a cocoon

In my stomach

 

I am scar tissue

From broken hearts

Too many pieces

 

I am drums and cymbals

Banging loudly

Crashing untimely

 

I am unforeseen intricacies

The unknown quantity

Balancing delicately
