In Your Pocket

In Your Pocket

A Poem by Stephanie W.

I'm starting to feel smaller than I ever have before.

Underneath your thumb. In your pocket. In your drawer. 

Something shiny you can fiddle with

And leave lying on your floor.

I'm starting to feel smaller than a flower in the earth.

Something stepped on and unnoticed.

Something pretty you can hurt. 

I'm melting into something less of me and more of you.

And in between your sheets I'm just a puddle in the blue.

I think I'm finally small enough to see eye to eye with you.

 

I tried to fit inside your pocket, 

But the seams all came unglued.

The demeaning parrallel comparison make this poem superb. One person being diminished by anothers insuffiecincies or insensitivity, probably both. Excellect composition

This was heart-wrenching. I don't even know you, and I felt for you incredibly. I just wanted to hug you after that,haha. The last two lines are genius. They really are. Well done.

I still love this. The "I'm melting into something less of me and more of you" line is especially amazing.

I love this.. I love the alice in wonderland type feel...
The first three lines amaze me most

Wonderful. :]

i love the imagery in this poem, the concept of it. i can relate. a person made to feel inferior to another, smaller than another. "I'm melting into something less of me and more of you" i love this line. this is short & simple, but has a powerful message underneath it. but i do hope you find someone who makes you feel special and big again.
