by Mooilky

I’ve been feeling off,

like a light switch kicked back.

Seemingly, I’ve developed a knack

for talking over all the things I lack.

If I say who I am,

you’ve gotta believe me!

Otherwise, who’s in the mirror

always glancing to see?

In windows and spoons,

sunsets and moons,

that face like a bare soul

sticky stuck to the bottom of my heel.

Peel through to the center of the earth.

Birth somebody a little more comfortable in their tectonic plates.

Honesty is difficult for me.

I cling to the closest lies, truth by proxy.

Double negatives, gotta be positive.


But I’ve been feeling off lately.

Maybe it’s time to recharge the battery.

I liked this poem,it was fun to read.Maybe this person feels lost about who they are and what their purpose in life is.They want to be positive and happy,but can only appear so on the surface,because it’s too much for them,life is like that sometimes.But you just have to keep pushing on,no matter what.I hope you have a wonderful day/night.

I support the shrek message.
