I Don’t Recognize You

Have you forgotten how to love?
How to hold conversations close?

You have been distant lately.
Not letting anyone close enough to hold you.
I wish you had spoken to me sooner.
I wish I could still recognize you in the mirror.

There is no room for self sabotage.
And yet, I’ve managed to master it.

I’m not sure where my pride hit the floor.
But somewhere my ego left right through the door.
I didn’t even bother to go after it.
I like who I am now without any of it.
