I want to become
something that is invisible
even as it burns your skin

.

I want to trade
the expression on my face
for the sensation of my words

.

I want to stop being
something
that is only seen
and never felt
and become something
that is never seen
but always felt

.

I want you to stop staring
without comprehension
I want you to experience
and understand

.

I want to stop shining
in the colors of a rainbow
I want to burn
with ultraviolet light
