Metamorphosing

Retired as a martyr
Laid out on the road
Bleeding out
Believing myself to be anointed
As something special
When I was just playing the victim
Longing for sympathy
A discarded sense of self.

Hangdog expression
Tightest of shoulders
Darkest of eyes
No spontaneity
No surprise
Lying to myself
Deepest denial
All the while being a doormat
Believing I had nothing to offer
Tiniest speck of the universe
The curse of oppression.

The heart pumping
Poisoned blood to an empty
Of a hollow soul
Older than the age
Either stuck in reverse
Or trying to walk again
I have to search for those past successes
Breathe fully in harmony with the present
As the wounds heal
The real face metamorphosing.
