Emma Jean's Blue Plate

By Sandra

I was crying,
like I always do,
from success having missed me again.

I keep pouring,
this honey extra-sweetened
nonsense,
in your face
I am no longer a novelty to keep you amused.

I have lost myself,
in camouflage,
blending away the madness.

Constantly reminding myself
to stop hating what I've
become.
