The Frozen Chair Given To Me

Credit: Diane Diederich
I am forgotten and unwanted

Cold and forgotten is all I feel and know.

I am so torn by the thoughts and thorns that strip my soul and make my secrets known.

What will I do? What can I do?

I am naked among those with clothes.

Cold and forgotten is all I feel and know.

I am without voice as there are millions who are heard laughing and cackling on the wind that passes by.

I am alone.

I am in a chair.

I can go nowhere else until I do what I am told.

I am always told what to do.

I may never speak against what I am told.

I die a little more today.

I am loneliness and despair.

I weep inside my thoughts a bit harder today.

I am dismissed and unwanted.

But what is this?

I feel.

I feel the soft, warmth of a hand that covers one of mine.

I begin to thaw.
