There is nothing attractive about this
this fragility
this china tea cup-ness

I long for a tougher skin
my own personal emotional forcefield
I shut my eyes and imagine a new me:

oblivious and unconcerned about how others view me

Later when I awake,
I want to be that person
aloof and free.
I'm curious,
Will the face I see in the mirror be mine
or yours?
