Invisible No More

my love affair with words

The 20 year goodbye

Take me
Break me
I’ve got nothing
left to give

Open me
close me
I’ve got nothing
left inside

Hold me
Scold me
I’ve got nothing
left for you

frozen

frozen

I’m caught

in your ice

blue eyes

in your dark

brown hair

in your sweet

caress

in your angry

glare

frozen

I am aching

and so unaware

that you’ll be

gone too soon

and never

will I have

made my

move

because I

am frozen

 .

would that i could

would that I could
erase you
would that I could
wipe you way
If I could
I would

but you creep back
into my life

you find a crack
in my armor

you find a hole
in my wall

you whisper into
my silence

you plaster yourself
upon my wall
so all I can see
is
you

would that I could
forget you
would that I could
let you
go
if I could
I would
I would
I would

Amnesia

days and days
and miles and minutes
years and years
come aching back
bringing with them
sorrow
and
heartache
I try to look away
I try to forget
to let go
to separate
take me back
amnesia
take me back
I don’t want
to remember
his touch
his kiss
his smell
take me back
let me forget
him
again

this is how

with hand to chest

and lips to finger pressed

I cannot move I cannot rest

.

this is how I ache

this is how I break

.

with hand to hips

and tongue to swollen lips

I explore you with my fingertips

.

this is how I ache

this is how I break

.

with heart to darkness

and lips to one last kiss

I cannot stop I cannot resist

.

this is how I ache

this is how I break

.

with hand to knee

and mouth to desperate plea

I beg you not to abandon me

.

this is how I ache

this is how I break

.

with tears to eyes

and lungs to broken sighs

I am left alone without goodbyes

.

this is how I ache

this is how I break

.

i’m so cold

I cry

and cling

to you

needing your

warmth

wanting your

touch

longing for

your arms

around me

but you stand

before me

in ignorance

not seeing

my teeth

as they

chatter violently

i’m cold

make me warm

I beg you

looking at the

warm layers

of clothing

You are wearing

you look at

me, but

you don’t seem

to notice

my tee-shirt

and jeans

my cold

apparel

i cry

and cling

to you

needing your

warmth

wanting your

touch

longing for

your arms

around me

you look

at me

as if i’m

some kind

of child

annoying you

with questions

of life

you stand

ignorant

of me

of my

cramping muscles

of my

chattering teeth

of my

freezing bones

HOLD ME!

I Scream

but as your

arms enclose

me

I finally

realize

you’re the

one

who’s making

me cold

heat

I wait here in this
heat
so silent so
unbearable
I wait and
I retract
I recoil
I step back
you stifle me
with your eyes
speechless
i lose everything
i worked
so hard
to gain
I try to contain
to elliviate
the ache
this silence
that echoes past
my refrain
and ends well into
my chorus
I wait
I retract
I dissolve
I disappear
waiting here
for you

and you are…

and you are moving too fast
you silence my heart
from crying out
and you are moving too hard
I can’t feel my feet
the night is so cold
and you are breaking me down
bending me in two
swallowing my heart
and you are taking it all away
leaving me with nothing
I’m not ready to be alone
and you are leaving me again
the same as before
just like everyone
just like
everyone
and you are leaving without
a single word
you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone
and you are gone

and
you
are
gone

Like an Ocean

Like an Ocean

I stand

rocking

carelessly tossing

my voice upon the

rocks

deaf stones

they cannot hear

my words

and I cry

my angered tears

— like an

ocean —

as they come

echoing

back

to me

dead

and lifeless

but still they

flow out of

me

and return

the same

always the same

always dead

Like an Ocean
