life slice #6.

i have to tell you,
there are days i feel so deeply flawed and imperfect,
the most so, really. and i wonder if
everyone can see that. just by

but then i hear myself laugh
in spite of it,
or because of it and i remember that
i'm quite happy. and it's been nearly a week
since i've felt loneliness. and that's not so bad.

i'm not so bad, you know.
