A Poem by Emma Marie Taylor

I want to speak
but my voice is dead
It comes in bursts, heavy as lead

I miss my chances, I miss my light
I scream but a scratch

The truth is this:

I am Anonymous

Stuck in a place
unheard & unanswered
I've never been offered
a second chance

Because my stomach twists the butterflies dance

I'm trapped in a reverie
Between peace & vagarity

I scream but they're blind
And I'm blind but they scream
For my voice is a dream
And my thoughts just a hurricane
Unknown of a face & unheard of a name

I choose to be in this
Yet I still hate the game

I'm trapped in a reverie
Between peace & vagarity

Quiet, unknown
Stuck with incompetence
