This is me
Everybody loved me when I was silent
and loose underneath my transparent rainbow
I'm not so sure.
Words have spilled from my lips like wine
these past days.
I was a transparent rainbow
restrained by a hand who hit me
restrained by a mouth that bit me
restrained by a group which stifled me.
I'm told that people have been waiting
for me to make this speech,
to hear me
I don't know
or to just have their turn after mine
and talk themselves.
Such things are the ways of this place
this house of revelation
all of us
come to bare our souls
and freed fingers
meant only to write it down.
I am a transparent rainbow
my colors soft
I take my place,
and winter is coming.
Their is a hush
a slight burst of sunrise as my lips part
and I smile.
I am free tonight
and no one can take that away from me.
Winter is coming
but it is not here yet.
I am no longer crawling across this surface
I am standing
my new way
my new voice
my transparent rainbow
are visible tonight.
