The Daily

Small fragments of myself

Here and there

Given freely without thought

I don’t mind being generous

With the scraps

After all

I’ve many pieces

Knit together into

Multiple layers

Shielding me

Protecting who I am

From exposure

Keeping those

Who would try to come close

At a respectably safe


Truth be told

The loneliness

Can be a bit



I’ve no complaints

The shell I’ve buried myself

Deep within

Keeps me warm enough.
