- my poetry · 1) EVERYTHING · 3) THOUGHTS


this independence i have clung to like a religion

is ebbing away, day by day

and i’m not sure where it’s going so i don’t know how to get it back.

is some other girl out there, secretly insecure and silently strong

realising the power she has, the power that was mine?

when have i wanted something animate to hang on to,

when have i wanted anybody to hold me,

when have i wanted anything, anyone, besides what i can get for myself?

i don’t know what has happened, so please little girl

wherever you are

send me a postcard with what i have lost

because i don’t like feeling lonely, and anxious, and not enough

and i don’t like holding on to that which i cannot keep.


where did i go?
