Charm 183 183 Sybille Sciamma

Me at 6 years old, family picture

Charm is my go to trick
my main access to the world

Probably learned at a very young age
to be cute and funny

Bend my head left or right
Smile deeply to show my dimpled cheeks

A spark in my eye,
a cheeky look darted at people

Get them to smille with me
to get them enthralled

Maybe I am enthralled myself
and cursed in my own spell?

Unable to let go
of this childish attitude

Lost in my eagerness to be loved
all my attention turned outward

When will I be full
and past insecurities?

No more trump card
Bring the curtain down on my acting

Just be me
calm and happy
