when it comes down to it

Posted to Action Poetry




when it comes down to it
when i am bare
dressed only in
my imperfections
when discomfort lays heavy
next to me in bed
when there is
no reason to pretend
when i close my eyes
and breathe in absence
when--
when it comes down to it
when the lights are off
when the smiles are gone
when--
i lay here
bare
empty
myself
when--
when it comes down to it
i realize i am
not enough
and maybe
this is what you saw
all along
