Redress Me

Don’t dress me in this…

this stunning dress

with the prickly underside

that replaces the radiance

with what can’t be seen

but only felt

by the weary

 

Don’t dress me in this…

this lonely misery

beneath the Belgian lace

that chides my childlike joy

with what can’t be spoken

but only felt

by the weary

 

Don’t dress me in this…

this forgottenness

pulled through each stitch

that bullies my being

with what can’t be solved

but only felt

by the weary

 

Don’t dress me in this…

this hang off me reaction

in the too tight sleeves

that crowds our conviction

with what can’t be sure

but only felt

by the weary

 

Don’t dress me in this…

this ardor that cleaves to my body

that finishes in grief

that trails me

like a train of lace

sweeping the floor

erasing my every step…

soon you’ll forget I was here

my scent will drip inside

the air above your bed

and you will ponder

who left it there

 

You must redress me…

redress me please

and hurry…

hurry

before

I disappear

into

the

nothingness

I create

out of

everything

I have ever

lived…

feared…

conjured…

redress me now
