Like Me/Let Me See Myself Out

I miss the days

Where I had hope

That someday

I’d meet someone

Like me

My therapist says

I’m sounding

“Terminally unique”

I have yet to find

A single person

With shared experiences

Trapped in a

Swelling blueberry

Stretching past my limit

Back pain by age 8

250lbs by age 10

Rejected by

Friends, family, lovers and

Strangers.

I am truly alone

On this planet and

I’m grateful for it

Nobody should know

What I’ve experienced

I just wish someone would

Smother me gently and

Let me see myself out

It’s not quitting if

Everyone agrees it’s

The finish
