Invisible Sun

December 19, 2008

Steven Gelberg


My humanity’s skin

Fits me.

I am its strengths

Its weaknesses.

From a childhood

Of secrets,

Being good,

Invisible, the good girl-

Comes this ability-

To see and hear,

To not be seen,

To be the observer.

Yet, in the hidden

Corners lies danger.

The soul risks slow submersion

When hidden in the dark.

When the good girl

Becomes the grounding,

The listener, the receiver,

Obscured from the light,

Death begins its

Slow creep.

Innocuously, like

Mitosis, splitting

The self from

Self, light, and air.

It is insidious and

It is death.

She becomes a secret.

She becomes the lie.

She becomes others lies.

She becomes invisible.

Turning towards the

Dungeon’s door,

The tearing of tectonic

Magnitude, she walks away,

Into the light.

    Oh my, I read “now the hard part”, and took a deep breath because I thought: critique. I can do this!

    Please, always advertise your creativity!

    Thank you for reading and your words.

    I do need to fix the font situation, I have vision issues even, I should know better! Thanks you for writing that. Sometimes things are right in front of us.

    I am now off to visit you!
