underneath

Updated: May 22, 2023



underneath


not a deadly sentence

nor a healthy one


supported

alone

the unknown path ahead

i blaze my trail


into the deep

an oceanic abyss


untamed frontier

unbroken and unbroken

boundaries close in

i push i drive

losses that devastate

hidden behind tears


hushed depths

locked away


the ride of my life

a flier of course

into the coal black night

the world sleeps


changes

invisible to all but me

every ounce of breath

movement inconsiderable


a book cover

deceives

able

disabled


ambushed

i call out


just out of reach

i can taste it

drifting out to sea

unnoticed


perceptions

assumptions

the unspoken

why


forgotten

where are you


time unstoppable

each moment unrecoverable


quest for inclusion

battles exclusion

deafening silence

passes

into the unknown

alone i must go


solitary

loved

that’s the thing

loved.

 

STOP ASIAN HATE


BLACK LIVES MATTER

Ah, more poetry, often the genre for intensity of feeling. And there is plenty of that here. Thank you for sharing what must be excruciating dichotomies. Am struck by able/disabled, solitary/loved, inclusion/exclusion. But NOT forgotten! Please tell us more about changes invisible to all but you... we really do want to know. And what is the book cover that deceives? Thank you thank you. You end with "loved." Indeed, you are.
