NaPoWriMo day 20: Brevity

There is no face,

instead: glass shelter.

You may emboss new eyes

for me to see

or take red crayon to draw lips

but shall I speak?

 

It’s a facade,

made of judgments,

pain, disappointments.

Are you brave?

 

To peel me down

to the bottom of my flesh and bones,

to the core of my soul

as I stand in emotionless nudity,

 

despite the cruelty of cold windy life

will you teach me to feel?

despite rejection ready to rife

will you teach me to live,

to be human, one more time?

  1. Magnificent and electrifying poem.

    despite the cruelty of cold windy life

    will you teach me to feel?

    despite rejection ready to rife

    will you teach me to live,

    to be human, one more time?

    A calling of giving a human being one more chance to life, one more chance to be human again and be at peace with themselves. I love love this. 🙂
