Poem: Inking Invisibility 

a tilt of the face communiqué/'s cool, and bad at the same time/ it becomes your advantage/ a suggestion takes flight/ there's a straightforward coyness/ so i twitch, writhe, and laugh internal/ a scared lamenting chortle/ a painful squirm / i'm unable to line up the edges of this mysteriousness/ you fade in, and then out/ i suffer acutely/ i'm at a dead end/ in the silence of your smile/ moonbeams are razor sharp/ showing deep cuts/ while wordless nanoseconds morph into uh oh's/ yes, you sharked into my waters/ there's an uncertainty of trust/ gnashing 'n gnawing/ as real life goes, some things never change/ as tears reverse my invisibility/
