I have been erased
no face
no name
Silence invades

I speak yet have no voice
no soul
no heart
Darkness I embrace

Invisible to the mirror
Into society I peer
no one sees
what does not exist

Asleep or awake
there is no existence to partake
Possessions collecting dust
While what does not exist rusts

Who am I, that never existed
That bleeds but never lived
Murdered by love
no matter

I do not exist

This is a very thought-provoking piece - emotive, powerful, and deep! It so eloquently expresses the thoughts and emotions of many who feel inconsequential in society! Beautifully written my friend! hugs. Pandita

Arthur, This one's an exceptional write for sure. (This type of theme kind of reminds me of some of Sylvia Plath's writes in a certain sense.) An aura of sadness and utter rejection of humanity and even the ethereal world pervade this verse. Superb Work and a FAVE!! Best Wishes, Gary
