Sum

I am more than the sum of my parts
I am more than what I have
More than what I’ve lost
I am more than flesh
More than filled space
I am more than my own opinions
More than my monsters say I am
I am more than “yeah she’s crazy”
More than “I used to know her”
More than chains to drag around
I am heart and soul
And feelings and fears
And loves and losses
And feats and failures
Somedays I am someone’s world
And somedays I am no one
Somedays the world is an oyster
And somedays it’s a fly trap
And somedays I can’t see past my eyelashes
And when no one is thinking of me
And when I am alone
I exist
And I love
And I am not broken
