, ,

my thoughts are lies.
there, i said it –
confidence is
but a farce,
that honest calm expected
of my age and gender
supplanted by
twitchy-skinned
anxiety.
i can’t believe
my CV, although earned
(and lived) and
the word deserve is
blood on my lip. what
to do?
walking within these
doubtful bones
and brains
a human,
whole
to those outside
but faulty parts to
me. my thoughts are lies,
i know but do not
believe.
