I am here
You notice me and move into my space. I’m still
You stay around and gradually we meld together
Until you seem like part of me.
Then you leave. But I’m still
Sometimes people yell at me for just feeling.
For just being.
I am offensive in my existence I suppose- because I am
Sometimes my voice is just too close to truth and some people don’t like
I am here
You cut me down and break my smaller branches
yet the force of me remains, though now I am crying, I’m still
When lightning and nuclear bombs
Like “I don’t love you” are
exploding in my living room I’m
bleeding lying underneath the rubble, and my spirit is written all over your
When you tell me my emotion is too much for you to bear
When I can’t speak anymore because no words can reach you
When every possible avenue is blocked and everything I have done is wrong
A drop of rain you will see someday on your dry desert
A dream you wish you had never dreamt in your deepest sleep
A sigh that should never have escaped your conservative lips
A promise you made in the irony of my arms
A word you want to say but never will, I’m still
