hir

By LyricLaceration

i am trapped outside of boxes
finding myself lost
can't return to what used to be mine
i went peering into darkness
came back a little strange
a person i don't reckognize
someone i can't explain
born into strict lines
discovering a world of boundaries forgotten
i've trapped myself outside of boxes

sigh. gender stuff isn't so fun when it's personal. I'm so confused. this poem probably doesn't even make sense.

    Okay, so i read the poem, then the note, then the title, then the note, then the poem, then the title, then the poem....staggered... then the poem, then the note. AND i think it makes perfect sense. Probably not the same sense. But it is not senseless... in short i liked it, and thanks for sharing... and sorry for babbling

    I'm so relieved it makes sense. You never have to apologize to me for babbling. It's the only way I can communicate!

    "trapped myself outside..." I'm wishing I had written that line. Lovely, darlin'.
