Seen (poem)


Eyes turned away,
In fear or disgust.
Affirmation of my taint,
My poisoned existence.

Battered by life,
Abused by the best.
Reality’s brutalities,
Harden on my skin.

Truth in pills,
Tough to swallow.
Medication overdose,
Prone minds and emotions.

Reflecting the hurt,
Wounds and scars unseen.
Dare to meet my eyes,
Lift my invisibility.

Hide (poem)


Know it yourself.
This world is cruel,
Unforgiving of fate.

Judgments rendered,
Predictive force.
Anticipating rejection,
Internalizing wounds.

Scabs formed,
Over festering flesh.
Ointments applied,
To rotting skin.

Safety nonexistent,
Create space for death.
Graveyards dug,
For countless corpses.

Nothing good,
Awaiting at the entrance.
Hostile intentions,
Fangs bared against you.

Your presence denied,
Enemies too powerful.
Allies nonexistent,
Hide yourself away.
