some version of me

Trying not to live in the “coulda beens”;
trying just to exist in the now.

And to see it as worthwhile,
though lately that’s been really hard.

I have to stop comparing my life
to some version of me
I thought I would be.

She still exists but
sometimes,
mostly,
only in my mind.

I invite her out.
She invites people in.
But then it’s like
another me
chews them up and
spits them out again.
