Self-Portrait

At fifty-two,

worn at the edges

 

and yet childish

like a small

 

threadbare blanket

hidden in a chest

 

in the attic

for forty years.

Your words here evoke a feeling of fragility for me. The "threadbare blanket hidden in a chest" gives a strong impression of that. But also one of abandonment, desolation at the same time ("in the attic"). It's a sad self-portrait, but I can understand the feeling on a personal level too. Can't say I'm all too crazy about this aging process thingy either lol ;) Always enjoy the way you write, merci.
