Unravelling

Unravelling
Once I felt complete
But now the layers are being torn away
Like an onion full of tears.
Acid burns, corrosion,
Striped to the naked bones.
I no longer know who I am.

Desecrated like a Mummy
Plundered with disrespect.
Exploited and abused.
I am but an empty shell.
I try to pull myself together.
To mend, To heal.
But I feel numb and powerless to make a change.
So I stumble through life. One step forward, two steps back.
Walking on thin ice. Feeling pins and needles.
Naked and exposed. Vulnerable.
Torn apart like an unwanted gift.
Unravelling until there is nothing left.
