In My Skin

This body of mine
Is just a vessel, just a shell
That has no more to tell
About the real me
Than a stone can determine
The depth of a well

This crude casing 
That I have been given
To walk around in
Doesn't fit my soul
It sneers and frowns
And brings me down
Off my high horse

It offers me no solace
No place to hide
This body doesn't fit

    Hi Eve, profound write this! The theme and the expressions have been brought out strongly - the way you've paralleled the body to the vessel drives the point home very well. I’m definitely looking forward to reading more poems from you. Vicky.

    Hi Skat! Thank you so much for your kind welcome and encouraging comments, it really is lovelier than it should be to have positive feedback! I'm worried I'm getting addicted to the forum, so much to read, so little time! Really loving it so far and looking forward to getting to know everyone, Thanks again, Eve.
