Dwindle

Emptiness wraps its arms around me again.

Like tendrils slowly tightening their grasp.

I remember this feeling all too well.

The child inside me, too weak to struggle, buried beneath burdens now.

The woman I am, withers in slow motion.

Indifference seeps in.

I go numb.

You ask me what is wrong, and all I can think is “How do you not know?”

Can’t you see it?

When you look into my eyes.

Doesn’t it show?

My world has been shrinking in around me since I was born.

Crushing my imagination, desires, dreams.

Every year pressing in a little harder, squeezing a little tighter, tearing through the flesh of my demiurgic mind.

Can’t you see?

When you look into my eyes?

I dwindle.

Hmm! Let's see.I live in Texas born to two human parents (According to my birth certificate) and have three siblings that are nothing like me. I'm an artist and writer. I've lived a lot and learned a lot in my short life and although I lean more towards the pessimistic there is always room to change my sometimes too small tainted heart ;p
