Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is: Write in your alter-ego’s voice.
I peer at old photographs,
with a magnifying glass,
I visit old locations, review conversations,
read between the lines, note pivotal times,
I jot down aberrations, motivations and accusations,
list suspects and personal effects,
I wonder what ifs, revisit past tiffs,
pull up the archives of my own mind,
I watch others go on with their lives,
talk to experts who testify,
I sort through the lies.
I question so much,
but it’s not enough, it’s not enough,
as I spread out all my clues,
I still don’t know where I disappeared to.
