By taking away my only companionship,
You ostracised me,
I was alone and vulnerable today,
Emotional and ill,
Stressed to the hilt,
Saddened beyond belief,
Could you not see?
Surely as a determined fellow woman,
My gendered mirror in this unclear ether,
You should be able to see me here.
Ask my name,
Wonder from where I came?
Genuinely and deeply,
not merely for the sake of externals’ auditing,
I have a life you know,
Feelings and thoughts within me run a deep and vast course,
But here it seems it is not the case,
I am but a coloured, vacant, emptied suitcase,
A younger model who holds no acknowledgement in your face.
