Default Me

(Since I had a layer of poly-struggle in writing this poem, it seemed appropriate to post.)



I don't know which Me to Be.

The Me who is overly emotional
- or so it would seem -
or the Me who holds it back,
and in,
and together?

The Me who shares herself, completely and intensely
or the Me who closes off - (insert above adverbs).

I have no middle ground
here
where the real Me is
shaped
and jaded
and sheared
and shattered.

Every time I choose a Me
and Be -
it seems
I've made another mistake,
chosen wrong again,
and You're unhappy with Me
or some form
of fucked-up vice versa
where I'm unhappy with Me.

I don't know how to figure Me
out
without
disfiguring
You.

All these Mes around.

The Me that I dream of Being
(full-time)
is the one
causing
the
most
trouble.

I'm afraid
to make
another
wrong choice.

So You choose the Me for a while, would You?
