to speak the unspeakable / to bear witness for the dead


For Donna and For Scott

 

to speak the unspeakable

to bear witness for the dead

 

If I kill myself am I a murderer?

Is it as bad as killing another?

What of interrupted ones who never were?

I have lost a half-sister and half-brother

She to suicide and he to criminal neglect

Is it any wonder then that I do not respect

The father we three share?

 

I am the last and least

 

In the belly of the beast

There I have spent my life where

Although unbearable

However terrible it is for me

For Donna and for Scott

It is no more for they are not

To be for them was not to be

 

I honor you my siblings though unknown

The last and least and lost is left alone

poignant read
Reviewed by Alexandre Arnau
of all the things i have read from you, this was the most painful thing i've had the pleasure of reading. i have to admit that i've had some difficulty with some of your work, not because it wasn't good, but because i have some trouble grasping material of a higher nature. which most of your work happens to be. i work from a coarser source, so sometimes you're a bit beyond me. the only thing i can find wrong with this piece was its last line.
though the world (we both seem to share) may seem grotesque, cold, and barren of beauty, you should know that if anywhere, at least here, you will never be alone. ever.

your friend in the search for beauty,
alex

Shattering write--I'm sorry this happened to you. Keep writing, stay strong...you are not worthless.
