I have

twisted

turned

squished and squashed

pushed

pulled

stretched and shifted

fit myself

inside the mold 

of who

I thought

you’d want me to be

I have

contorted

conformed

and created

someone

you would love

but

now you’ve gone

and I have no more

knots to tie

myself in

and now

I can't quite

remember

the shape of me
