Look at me!
don’t just see words on a page
these aren’t just letters that run swift
they’re a brief scope inside of a heart that sits
troubled to be
too see, the reason it beats
soul rides to see if heart will peak or be overrun pulsing with a steady hum
won many battles, however, still engaged in some
speaking written heart-beats pouring soul liquid spilling abstract as you look to see hearing
feeling every emotion these letters soak in
WHY CAN’T I SAY WHAT NEEDS TO BE SAID
holding all this in feeling broken and dead
my only release is through a pen, key-pad, or pencil
realizing at the end
this battle is all mental–
can you read me now?….
