Invisibility Hues

How do I see

myself?

Sometimes

I don't, for

I am missing

in-action

at the

edge

of this life unlived

of this story untold

of this destiny unfated

of this truth unveiled

in all its

naked

fury

as I'm so far from freedom

so close to

my own

incarceration

where my heart beats hard against

a ribcage

that won't let

me go

out

into the world where I can see

myself

becoming more me

than is necessary

in

everyday

subsistence.
