You are What You Eat

I do not remember who I used to be

how she used to feel

only know that this stripped down woman

who currently inhabits my skin like a suit

has been dining on pain like a delicacy

spitting out kindness, empathy

like watermelon seeds

self-hatred rendering gentler fruit

indigestible to my system
