Can you share something you’ve been working on?
Q&A With Shay Each Sunday
Q: Can you share something you’ve been working on?
A: For the last few weeks I’ve been compiling some of my poems—both new and old. I’m working on putting a whole book together. I also want to share some new content! So without giving too much writing away, this week I’ll share a poem with you that will be in my upcoming book of poetry. I’d love to hear what you think!
I feel you as much as the shadow
stirring along the floor
when he enters my mind
and seals it with
I hear you as much as the silhouette
that slinks silently.
Not one creak in the wood,
but he scrapes against my brain,
My breath holds still.
I forget to let the air out
He paces on my chest
with feet viscous and deliberate.
I feel you,
pressing existence out
through the seams of my skin.
