Naked Selfie

The unfamiliar he stares at me

Unclothed, unfeeling

Never is he the man of my dreams

The he I wish to capture

To capture other he

For how could this unsculpted stomach

Gather the seed of their loins

Beneath many unspoken nights

Yet he stands still for capture

Since his pale skin could never capture

The he he wish to capture

The me this mirror

this phone uncaptured


For this prompt:

Look in the mirror. Does the person you see match the person you feel like on the inside? How much stock do you put in appearances?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us MIRRORED.

The peculiar font of the poem was due to me trying to edit it miserably across multiple softwares. The new theme was due to me not using the most of the features of the previous theme. Adding featured images is too much a hassle. And I guess my blog needs more of a microblog feel for quick, hassle-free, and reader-friendly prompt responses.

  1. If I were to take a selfie, it would usually be for profile pics. Showing off just for attention is something that feels really shallow and meaningless to me, you know. I also feel like that kind of attitude can pretty much eat away one’s soul, too, you know.

      • I remember being like that before I became this optimistic. Back then, I tried to blog just because I wanted to be famous, and it ended up with me feeling bored and discontent very easily. Good thing my parents and a bunch of other trustworthy people helped me improve. Freaking nuts!
