(Hello, my name is)

Sat, 03/04/2017 - 22:41 -- tokii

Hello,

My name is broken

A heap of letters left on a tattered floor

Shards of my identity, opaque from the settling dust

 

Hello,

My name is remembering

An assortment of distorted memories

pasted together unevenly, made unrecognizable by time

 

Hello,

My name is a pseudonym

A seven letter alias that I’m known by

A byname that I respond to as a courtesy

 

Hello,

My name is my identity

which is lost, unable to be retrieved

Rendering both irrelevant

 

Hello,

My name is silent

Whispered on the breath of passing strangers

Drifting between the places of forgottenness and imagination

 

Hello?

My name is…

disremembered
