Entry 693

“Why do you think you hate yourself?”
I hate that I cannot answer that question. 
I avert my eyes and avoid the topic. 
“Why does a fox gnaw its own leg off?”
I feel trapped, at all times, 
So I squirm in my seat 
And watch as she writes something 
To reaffirm the diagnosis 
That was decided the moment I sat down 
And crossed my arms. 
Body language will tell too much 
If you are not careful. 
Deception requires practice 
To weave every layer into the perfect fabric 
That is both attractive&durable.
