Just Stare At Me - Poem by dave sherratt

Am I a ghost in the fog?
A teardropp in the rain
Hot magnesium in the sunlight
The anguish in your pain
A heartbeat that is silent
A tumour in your soul
The infinity in an endless day
A wind that makes you cold.

A new star never christened
Or the blackness in your sky
A diminishing light thats too bright for you
A retroaction questioned right.
I'm here, existing in a fleshy wrap
I injure then i scream
I'm not the one thats's barely visible
Sojust don't stare at me.

    No you're right Dave, no 'just don't stare at me' - the emotional feel of this poem is deeply felt - I like how you've awaken our feelings.
