sound

i’d like to think i’m a shadow

with fingertips like knives

and eyes like buttons,

but i’m more like a sound.

not a good one.

not a sweet one,

but a sound, nonetheless.

i sound like struggle,

like pain and confusion.

a crash.

a shriek.

a whine.

a wince.

like a storm

or a volley,

but a sound, nonetheless.
