#thesearenotmine

Someone else’s memories 

are in my head – 

has to be theirs, 

can’t be mine. 

It’s like I found this 

strange channel 

out there 

in the airways 

and I’m invading 

another brain. 

Right? 

That has to be it. 

There’s no way that was me.

Was I really that 

sad, 

stupid, 

shy, 

simple?  

Did I really make all those mistakes?

No way.

Can’t be me.

Has to be someone else,

and I feel really bad for that person.

    I feel this way too and it’s painful to look back on. An entirely different person. You capture that experience quite well, and I find it beautifully written.

      Thank you for saying that – it’s always humbling for my work to impact another person. And I often wish I could just forget – like forever.
