Nebulous

A smile,

A laugh.

Calculative, precise.

"What a beautiful young Woman

you are,

ready to please

the perfect Man

that is required for a 

Healthy

Happy 

Normal

life."

A heartbeat,

a falter.

In that instant a glint in my eyes 

reveals the Beast that lurks inside.

But my smile

Cold

Plastic

yet convincingly Genuine

does not betray me,

and All is fine.

But the Beast knows of my facade, and it

Laughs and

laughs and

laughs.

I am simultaneously everything and nothing.

I am the Universe,

I am an atom.

I am Man,

I am Woman,

I am Neither.

But I am still smiling

and the Beast is still laughing

and today, alongside every other day,

I am just the

beautiful young Woman

looking for the

perfect Man to live out the rest of my

Healthy

Happy

Normal

life with.
