Write Me Up

Just writing. Maybe someone will read it.

Looking back at some old posts,

And even more than before, I

Realize that I am a different person

Now

Maybe it is the way I’ve

Been broken and pieced

Back together one too

Many times

Maybe it is the tearing

Of my body through the birthing

Of two children

Maybe it is the crushing

Of my mind and spirit

From being ground down and

Forgotten one too many times.

Who is this person

That lightheartedly posted

Beautiful photos

Every Friday?

Who is this person

That enjoyed tea

And wrote frivolously about

Roommates and burly man-friends?

It is not me. Do I want

It to be me again?

I don’t know.

Either way, it never could be.

She is dead, buried

Under piles of laundry undone

And crumbled Cheerios

And words left unsaid

And words screamed that should

Never have been said

She will never return.

Who will the new person be?
