Disappear  
It's the lie I pull inside myself
Thinking no one else will know
I've been circling the drain so long
'Cause there's no where else to go
I've been losing little pieces of me
By pretending I am fine
I watch people pass me by
Wondering why they are so blind

It's not okay
I'm not all right
Can't you tell that I
Tossed and turned all night
And when I speak
Why can't you hear
When you don't see my pain
I disappear

It's the silence of my radio
How I never, ever sing
I've been waiting in the bed all day
For the joy life doesn't bring
I've been losing little pieces of me
By hiding from the truth
I could shout it from the rooftops
But by now it's just no use

It's not okay
I'm not all right
Can't you tell that I
Tossed and turned all night
And when I speak
Why can't you hear
When you don't see my pain
I disappear

It's the darkness that awakens me
I see clearest in the night
I used to sleep with the light on
But always dreamed in black and white
I've been losing little pieces of me
And it's just as I had feared
Since you never really noticed at all
... I disappeared

Just one comment for all ---

Did you get my email about these?

They break my heart.

Your command of emotion is masterful. The imagery stays with the reader long after the poems have been read.

These are really good, Chelle, really good.
