JUST A SKELETON

Emma Guzowski


A skeleton

Nothing but a shriveling reminder of what was once there

What am I but a pile of rotten bones longing for something to pervade?

Hooded eyelids over brown orbs

Views of busy flowers and flashing lights



My nose, hated with a passion

My reflection, an asymmetrical figure

A downgrade, a deep hole in, middle of my skull

I coil in my own emptiness, packed with regret


I relinquish my egotistical self

I used to wish for plumper lips and a shinier smile

Was my happiness simply a posing figment behind it?


I wish I had a smile.

Once loathed, eternally craved
