The Silent Sickness

by Jayson Yerby

Ekphrasis in reVerse 2020

I could never piece together on why your negative energy was surrounding my already dismembered soul…I was only 16 and you made me feel an emotion so detrimental and grievous that I wouldn’t wish this disease on my worst enemy…I didn’t deserve this…I wasn’t prepared for the psychological warfare that was brought upon me…”I’m fine”…”nothing is wrong”…”everything is ok”…holding my head high and keeping a smooth aura of a smile…to only hide the torment that I was dealing with…this sickness is devouring me alive…pleading for a shining spirit to aid my soul…
