Can you feel me as I lie here in this black ink… I know you see me
I know you feel the things I say but can you feel me?
I am lost in this word-world of black and brown and blue symbols of life
Always just the glance of your eyes on my presence…
Touch me now.
See how I feel… lost in this world of curvings and carvings,
rolls and straights, foreign and home.
Can you see me? Here I am, right here. As you read
and feel and understand or not, I am here.
If what I am means anything to you
then touch me
let me know you feel it too
tell me you understand.
Free me now.
I do not want to be lost forever in symbols
I want to be new, to be alive and to live.
I will rise up from this black ink and take a form
that will find you and celebrate our
togetherness for you alone
could touch me.
