"Show Yourself"

"Show Yourself"

A Poem by Kimberly Ellis

Is that all you got?

I want to hear your voice, crisp and clear;

put some backbone into it;

make me crave your words;

make me want to claw through the maze,

the parts of you hidden from this world;

show them to me.

 

Is that all you got?

I want to hear some emotion, rough and raw;

put some heart into it;

make me feel your words;

make me want to run away with the beauty,

the parts of you that only shine for some;

shine them for me.

 

Is that all you got?

I want to hear you sob, empty and naked;

put some soul into it;

make me cry with your words;

make me want to walk beside you amongst

the parts of you that are too hurt to move;

move them for me.

 

Is that all you got?

I want to hear you scream, loud and booming;

put some anger into it;

make me gasp at your words;

make me want to explore their very depths,

the parts of you that are dying to be heard;

reveal them to me:

 

I'm listening.
