Poem : Hot Tears

Cold fingertips

Don’t worry ’bout my art

They will read between the lines.

So what if I was the sun in female form.

Bless you.

Afraid to cry?

So was I.

Sure. No. Sure. No. Sure. No no no no.

I don’t care.

No. Please stop…………

Please stop. …………..

Please stop…………………..

Please……….

Stop………

Hot tears.

Body cries.

Smeared.

Eyes and heart crossed.

My skin becomes concrete.

To the invisible intruders.

Mind put back into place.

Metallic screams.

Messages received.

Mother’s lullabies turned into nightmares.

I found your light lurking…

In the corner of my left eye.

Tried so hard to push you out.

I know who I am.

I know who I am.

If I know who I am, why do I miss me?

A lie, another, and another……. and yet another……

So far down paths that may not lead back to me.

Of course!

Please leave.

Please leave me.

Leave me.
