    I deliver to you
    on this day of November 8
    a souliloquy born internally
    on a naked stage waiting
    to be judged by self
    tried by self sentenced by self
    cried by self condemned by self
    hated by self unrecognizable to self
    by myself

    ..............................

    days have gone by maybe years
    stillness captured to much time
    maybe fears
    paralyzed from the neck up by
    impotent thinking contradictions
    not being but getting up
    when neccessary only
    to dig a hole for my soul

    "hey I'm down here"

    I lost my hearing before it fell in
    so I continually look for what is before me
    and stay LOST

    'dammit can't you hear me?"

    "can't you save me?"

    "can't you feel me?"

    all collapses on deaf ears
    amongst the cheers of doubt
    and the high fives of pity
    that waits for me to utter it's name

    pity, pity, pity!!!

    now I wonder if it will appear
    behind me in the mirror
    and slash my throat like some
    demented urban horror flick....

    As I read these precious lines...I felt the spirits moving down into the place of deeper souls...and I saw the reflections of 'self'....struggling to be seen and to be heard...as the message unfolds...

    know that you have been heard poet...your message has been received...divinity walks with verse

    *spirit-walking*
