The Other Me…
by Ela Lourenco
At night I can finally shed my aura
Finally, free to throw off the happy, kind ‘me’
And head past the elegant homey décor
Down to the basement.
Down into the bowels of my house and my soul
Where everything is in abject contrast to my ‘life’ upstairs
Here is my place, this is my time…
Through the opaque window in the darkest recess
Lives the other me
The one who was before I tricked her
And swapped realms
It is better than anything on TV
Getting to watch her screams as she tries to survive my world
Shame none of her friends or family will ever know…
