russian dolls

for this journey
i bring with me a tiny baby
a curious child
and a young woman

the four of us
walk or run when needed
rest if we pause
converse and plan
discuss our positions

the baby has no memory
the child dreams and plays
the young woman wishes
I listen to them all

I carry them inside

about giving

there is a shelve
full of things that should have a label saying
"do not give these away"

because if you do give those
you can never replace them

but that shelve doesn't have that label

invisible woman

I may or may not be there
but you won't see me

like you have not seen me before

you won't see me
you don't see me

i may or not
feel or want things
but with my magical powers
they won't be in your way

as they haven't been before

i will fade in the background of your memories
with all the great life lessons I was instrumental for
like the "sugar in the milk"

you won't see me

like you didn't see me before
