Make Me Visible

Worn thin

Transparent

I am the

Ghost of the

Woman

I used to be

 

Living

In shadow

Haunting the night

Lost in the past

Lost in my head

My spark grows

Dim

My light eclipsed

 

Do you see me?

Apparition

In the corner

Flicker of light

Almost extinguished

 

Do you hear me?

Whisper in the

Stillness

Haunting melody

 

Do you feel me?

Brush of fingertips

Warm breath

In the darkness

 

Do you sense me?

Whiff of lavender

Iron tinge of pain

 

Can you

Make me

Visible?

 

Can you

Return me

To life?

 

Can you

Remember me back

To the warm blooded

Woman of curves and angles

Radiant

Whole

Who leaves the

Lingering taste of

Chocolate and fire

On your tongue?

  1. This is absolutely beautiful! I was talking yesterday with another blogger about the subject of feeling so lost within our own selves. How does one go about filling that space back up so that we might begin to recognize ourselves again? Thank you ❤

    1. It is a struggle. I am just reaching the point where the wonderful affirming things that people are saying to me are starting to stick a little. I started writing down the kind things people said and reading them when I was at my lowest. It was surprisingly helpful.
