Invisible No More

my love affair with words

the smile

It started with

a smile

a quick hello

an innocence

shared

an electricity

crackling

in their

eyes

 .

It started with

a smile

a simple caress

an innocent

kiss

a tender

word

full of

meaning

.

it started

with a smile

and lived

and entire lifetime

in the span

of a minute

as her imagination

built an entire

lifetime

of love

based on that

one smile

.

peeling

peeling back the layers

of the building

that surrounds me

I am surprised

by the toughness

of it’s skin

echoing outward

before me

your voice

comes rushing back

to haunt me

Rushing back to

taunt me

Achingly I know

I can never

see

what is hidden

deep inside of

me

peeling back the layers

of the structure

that confines me

I find myself

alone and aching

filled with madness

and rage

I am slowly

breaking

I am broken

courtesies of the past

ripped away

torn away from me

leaving me reeling

blinking in

surprise

peeling back the

layers

peeling back the

layers

peeling back

peeling

peeling

Excited now I’m

almost there

I’m almost

to the end

I’m almost

at the core

peeling back the

layers I

STOP

in horror

as the last

layer falls

away

there is nothing

there

but a space

a pause

a respite

and then more

layers

more me…

 –

 –

 –

…peeling

back the

layers
