Paper Thin, poetry and digital art by Joan Ellen Gge




Paper Thin

How delicate, fragile
the ego, the self, the dreamer
the flesh, unprotected
tender, soft bellies exposed
ripe for the tearing
the wolf, the critic

The faith, the bold front
disappearing under scrutiny
before the faceless masses
what was surety, melting
hardened heart hibernating
hiding, behind apron strings

We are surrounded and
constructed of similar fabric
paper thin construct, tearable
crushable thinness, words and
deeds rend us, collapse us
ill wind shears us apart
leaving us helpless and betrayed

I promise I will not
huff and puff and
blow your house down
will you do the same for me?
