Silenced

We're thrilled to share piece 2 out of 4 from Sage Jennings!





It’s scarier than yelling

He isn’t quite yelling, but it’s that tone


If you just-

I’m trying to explain-

It wasn’t my-


A scratch drags slowly down the back of my throat

He is getting far away

He is getting blurry

He is

He

He is

He is getting blurry

He is getting far away

A scratch drags slowly down the back of my throat

Sage is a 17-year-old senior from Edmonds, Washington. They have loved reading and writing poetry for years. Among their favorite poets are Fatima Aamer Bilal, Richard Siken, and Sabrina Benaim. They believe that symbolism and allegory exist to communicate emotions that can't truly be captured literally. They use writing as a form of self-expression and are happy to be able to share that.
