Insubstantial - Poem by Eila Mahima Jaipaul

you've heeled me love
a half-tame wolf
with my heart
hanging down my chest
all disturbing ripples of color
and nothingness
I feel insubstantial
like a thin shell
cracking with each breath
at the silence inside
wondering how I will move
from this sadness that
I tiptoe through
barefoot and blindfolded
among its pain daggers

    there is a little message in this poem, a little sadness you have to be barefoot and blindfolded so you can hide from the pain, so sad

    Ohhhhhhhhhh Yeahhhhhh
