Being Real


Amid a sea of faces I am a pencil sketch.. The outline correct But my features blurry. Hard to know where I stop and my shadow begins...trying hard to decide which one is real. Days are automatic, one and then another, not feeling strong emotion, easy enough, muted pain... The world can seem distant perhaps I'm someone else's story written yesterday on the ever shifting sand......
