Not Me - Poem by Jessy Liz

I fall back
On you
To help me
Get through
Help me
Get by
I need you here-
It’s cold-
So lonely
I need you
Please hold me
Love and hate
Tears and fears
Static memories
Through the years
..Not me..
..Not me..
Drums my heart
I’ve been falling
From the start
Not that girl
I’m not you
Please help me
Get through
Mirror image
Not what it seems
Cracked and warped
Is this a dream?
Body cage
On left
Broken girl
On right
Which of the two
Am I?
Tiny light
Shines inside
Is that me?
Meant to hide
..Not me..
..Not me..
I am not her
I am not you
You are not a part of me
Soul and skin
Weak and fragile
Blink once
And it’s gone
Feeling’s there
But now I’m home
Mirror image
Not what it seems
Now whole
But temporary
Held together
By chains
Binding me
To this pain
So weak
Tears are falling
Hard to speak
..Not me..
..Not me..
I am not you.
Twins in one flesh
Which reality is true?
..Not me..
..Not me..
..I am..
..Not me..

To ANA....
