Silencer – Rediscovered Poetry

Words that pierced my heart….

This is a “one-shot” poem from Feb. 2021 – I occasionally will go through the process of writing by way of stream of consciousness. No editing except formatting. It’s always interesting to run across them. Sometimes I need to hear what I was feeling. It’s always a bit stunning that you can forget something so deeply. Like, I wouldn’t have even known that I wrote this if I had stumbled across it unlabeled. It’s a pretty deep truth that struggles to stay surfaced. Working on not silencing myself everyday <3

Silencer

Words that pierced my heart

Early

Often

Always sung in melodic harmony

Transfixed

Transformed

Words that Voices Never Shared

No One Dared

Silenced

Like a haunted theme

Of deepest

Fear

Never shared never heard

No one

Listening

Screaming Wailing Reaching

Cried

Begged

Pounding on glass

Muted

Stifled

Finally realizing it was

Always me

Silencing

Always me

Silenced

The only one I needed

Hear me

See me

Heal me

It has always been

Me

Well, that is the question, isn't it? What if I don't actually know who I am. I have things I do, things I like. but are they who I am? Who knows. But that's what I'm here to figure out. Will the real Aminda please stand up?
