Vanity (4-5-2009)

vanity

It follows me everywhere

sometimes it controls me,

consumes me,destroys me.

Don’t want to get old

Don’t want to get fat.

I don’t know who I am anymore. Did I ever?

vanity

It is probably going to be the death of me.

Before m.s. Before smokes.

At least I stopped throwing up;

Bad for my teeth.bad for my heart.

vanity

It’s everywhere.

All around us.

Haunts us.

Becomes us
