Self portrait by Angel Marie Russell

I just feel so very human
I’m so tired
Of picking up the pieces
This feeling isn’t permanent
But it is here
And I wish I didn’t know so very much
About breaking
And glue
About where all the tiny cracks are
And how each mend holds
A piece of me together
I must be a professional by now
A repairer extraordinaire
Even a phoenix
Gets tired
From rising
