a Photographic Journey by Meryl

Invisible

they say
she looks
her best
toned legs
ample breasts

why can’t
she rest
food aplenty
passed
her tests

why must
she wear
her heart
on her
chest

I say
why can’t
you listen
look inside
my refrain

why can’t
you see
me my
invisible
pain

Demon

headstrong
chamber full
pants outgrown
shirt so black

he knocks
then pounds
make room
clandestine attack

tap gently
turn the key
demon transfer
possibility

We all have our demons.
But what to do when they come knocking
in our dreams, in our thoughts, at our real doors?
For years, I was at their mercy, became paralyzed with fear
when they appeared in nightmares, on the phone, in a letter or at my door.
I would disappear, hand over my power just like that. Through recovery,
I’ve learned that I have a choice. To let then possess me…..or let
them pass through me, just like this Phantom displayed here.
What I’ve learned is that they come from the past which
is no longer….that today they exist
only if I let them.
