And I can say I think I learned yesterday what the book will be about: abandonment, betrayal, resilience. (so uplifting, i know...but hey...)
Here’s the thing that I would say
If I were invisible today:
I would smile first and then begin
Starting with my oldest sin.
I’d tell you why I never learned
Protection first before I burned.
I’d willingly admit my part
In following this touchy heart.
I’d take my time and spill it out--
Every vision, every doubt.
You’d hear my voice and wonder why
I showed up here to even try.
I’d hide of course but even then
I’d have an eye out for a friend.
In moments when I take up space
I’d like to trust this just in case.
I’d like to stretch and drop my clothes,
See who misses and who really knows.
And when I finished I would grin
Wondering if let you in.
Wondering if you see the whole
Where wisdom meets the tale untold.
I’m quite invisible, but not unseen--
I’m just here hiding between.
