i’m not here

an uninvited guest

treads heavy
in my house
what it calls itself
i do not know
but i call it
Hurt
it has stolen
all the words
from the books
and painted gray
the pictures
on my walls
it sets hornets loose
inside my thoughts
and pinches hard
the pauses
between words
all this it does
and whispers,
“I’m not here,
I’m not here”
