Flesh

by Chloe Jade 2 years ago in sad poetry

My Body

Flesh

My name is Chloe.

An ordinary name

noting special

or exciting

or fantastic

But, I am proud.

I am proud of all the things you choose not to see.

I am more than flesh. I am more than skin.

I am brave

kind

clever

funny

weird,

An extraordinary tragedy.

There are parts of me that are ugly,

Parts that I am ashamed off.

Things I regret,

Big

Vile

Evil things, that I like to hide.

I walk shrouded in dusk.

Feel free to see it. But its mine.

Never yours.

Don't pretend to know me.

Because you don't.

Look again and really look, really see

Me,

and not my flesh.
