What do you want from me?

You have the heaviest hands.





Im having problems.
Problems with my heart.
Im scared...
I wake up to my pulse in my ears
and sometimes feel as if the blood is running out of me.

At least now mum is allowing me to go to the doctor.
But now its becoming harder and harder to lie.

Its surprising that I am not better at this by now.


Doctors in general scare me.
Their hands are heavy as well...
they remind me of his,
of theirs.
Their fingers are cold, freezing, and make me shake.
He doesnt like the fact that I am 85 pounds.
He doesnt like the fact that I shake,
or do not look him in the eyes.
He sighs when I cry in front of him.

They are all sort of the same.


I do not and can not trust anyone.

You can trust your own inner beauty, Ischelle, and your ability to find words to express your pain. Clearly, no one can take that from you.

Beauty is love, Ischelle.

Love is not brutality.

Let beauty find you, Love, and flee from brutality.

God be with you.

Ischelle, trust your own talent. It can forge beauty even out of the things you endure. Your poems are beautiful. I hope you will be able to rise above the suffering, to come to a place where you are whole, and safe, and able to unleash the full force of your talent. The world needs more poets and less brutality.
