This Is Me

This Is Me

Imperfection
is burned in my mind.
Never expect
the best
from me
when you can get
the worst
so much more easily.
A shadow over my soul,
a burden over my heart--
darkness
seeping through my skin
and into my veins;
blinded.
The light of life
has been taken away from me
and I am no longer
alive.
Bending, bending,
broken.
Take the shattered
pieces of my life,
put them in your memory
as a life marked by
greatness and
scarred by tragedy.
