I am Sisyphus :

My boulders of terror

and rage

tumbling down

despite

my valiant attempt

to keep them

secured

to the apex.

Terrifying me

with their repetitive

urgency

to annihilate.

 

I am

The Little Match Girl

waiting in the dark,

hands numb

with cold

waiting..

 

on my

Auntie’s stoop

begging

to come in.

Desperate in

my desire

to sit

with my cousin

Gail

on her big comfy couch

and watch

soap operas

while

drinking milk and

eating chocolate chip cookies

still warm from her oven.

 

I am Princess Aurora

asleep for the last

one hundred years

waiting for Love’s

sweet kiss

from a benevolent

Queen,

to awaken

in me

my own

innate loveability.
