Ready

image

There’s no hiding place left
for my soul.
The dark spaces have all been
lit, filled with a warm glow.
My flesh radiates heat, my skin
alive. My eyes giving me away.

Should I run? Try and find a dark alley
somewhere? The street lights shaped
like hearts seem to say “be still”.
But I’m afraid. I want to close my eyes.
But I know I’ll just end up peeping.
Finally believing in the voice I hear counting.
Knowing I don’t want to be invisible anymore.
I’m ready to be found.

  1. Brilliant piece Tosha. Truly enjoyed this one. I think the ‘eyes giving me away’ part is great. Like the eyes being the window to the soul.
    And that photo is awesome. I love that red dress splash of color in the long white hallway.
    Have a great weekend.
