Throwback Friday, The Invisible Me, by Ivor Steven

My poem today is from Febuary 2018, and ironically seems appropriate, now my book “Tullawalla” has been published and doing reasonably well ..

The Invisible Me

I’m too soft and creamy, like melted chocolate.

Naive to a fault, until it is too late.

Vulnerable, like a wafer and ice-cream in-between,

During a local hot day of one-hundred degrees.

Afraid of being visible to the vast unseen.

Confidence is scrambled, and of low esteem.

Drowning, like our world’s sick honeybees.

Choking on my words of melancholy and wanna be’s.

Crawling like a man cut-off below the knees.

Falling like a stone, and I’ve yet to set her free.

Far too trusting for these rough open seas.

And no idea of what, I want to do or be.

Scared of my own illiterate tendencies.

Wondering if a publisher would even read me.

Ivor Steven (c) Feb 2018

G’day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I’m an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I’ve been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I’ve been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems. View all posts by ivor20
