Beside Yourself

Beside Yourself

You are outside yourself.

Outside of the who

You call your own.

The vessel of warm,

Pulsing meat

Lying limp like a doll

Unresponsive,

Passive.

It has your face.

It takes up all of your space.

But for all the blank stares

It will never let you go back.

Was this ever really you?

Are you beside yourself?

(Or have you been replaced by some other self?)
