jekyll/hyde/gaslight.

A Poem by jenniewren (J.W. Bouwman)

words fail
and life crumbles
when everything
i
thought i was
is shown to me
in your mirror:



i
am the beast
and i am the horror
who is always the one
who causes the rift
and never the one
who heals it



and
the sooner i (wo)man up
and realise these
apparently
inalienable truths,
the sooner
you can be happy

but how do i
squelch the monster
who lives inside me
when i didn’t even know
she existed?
