    I am here but not really

    I trim my nails
    parts of me fall away
    as hard crescents on the floor.
    A pickled Soul
    in a glass jar
    fragile as hell.
    A bluebottle buzzes near my ear
    and sunlight passes through me
    translucent as chiffon,
    ephemeral as the bluebottle’s
    iridescent wing.
    I am here but
    not really
    l was here
    but not really.

    Interesting poem!
    Even not being here, I hope you stay here.

    Welcome to LitNet !!!

    Enjoyed your poem, especially "A bluebottle buzzes near my ear
    and sunlight passes through me
    translucent as chiffon,
    ephemeral as the bluebottle’s
    iridescent wing."

    Enjoyed your poem. I'm not here either.

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
