No Voice

No Voice

Listen to me
please
is all I ask
Hear my words
Let them resonate
and you will learn
about me
For I have been forgotten
My allusions unnoticed
or disregarded
Your guilt quickly
and bombastically
camouflaging the truth
of what I say
Silencing
You spin it
until unrecognizable
You are now the victim
and I the aggressor
My precious words
catch the fury of your ire
and fall in ashes
to the ground
Unheard 
Unrecoverable

The Messenger

The Messenger

I am Mercury
but I cannot
convey
my feelings
to you
A communicator
talking to
a brick wall
I speak
and you hear
a foreign language
You are deaf
to my words
Oblivious
to my feelings
One more 
roll of your eyes
I cannot stand
When did you
stop listening?
When did you
stop remembering?
When did it
become okay
to disrespect me?
When did I become
such an irritant?
I am rendered
speechless
Frightened now
to use my words
fearing they
will be misconstrued
and weaponized
to fight against me
 
Don’t shoot the Messenger
