Poetess of the beyond / Poem by Olfa Philo

Poem by Olfa Philo

 

Poetess of the beyond

I’m the voice
I’m the voice of the voiceless
I’m the poetess of the beyond;
beyond the surface,
beyond the mask,
beyond the smile,
beyond the chains,
beyond the walls,
& beyond the taboo…

I’m the voice
I’m the voice of the voiceless
I’m the poetess of the beyond;
beyond fears,
beyond pains,
& beyond traumas…

I’m the voice
I’m the voice of the voiceless
I’m the poetess of the beyond;
beyond the face,
beyond the bosom,
beyond the flesh,
& beyond reason…

I’m the voice
I’m the voice of the voiceless
I’m the poetess of the beyond;
beyond oceans,
beyond maps,
beyond frontiers
& beyond earth…

I’m deathlike silence
given a gun-like voice…
