Invisible No More

my love affair with words


on February 5, 2016

“I know what you’re

hungry for”

he says

with blood-shot eyes

and yellowed teeth

he stands before me


holding out a pen

“I know what you’re

hungry for”

he says

he wants me to begin

but he pulls the pen away

and I am left

to ache once


for the words

that never come

for the silence

that never goes


he accuses and

laughs in my face

but still I cannot get close

I cannot begin

he waits for me

to stop him

he waits for

me to yell

but I am

alone and


here in my

self-appointed hell


he calls me

he knows that

I’m insane

he knows that

writing is

all I have

to ease this



still he does not

give up

still he does not

give in

when will he

ever let me
