For Crying Out Loud

I write the words
I long to hear
and hide them where
others like me will find them
I hide behind invisibility
I don’t hurt
and build up
total strangers
while silently
inside I die
I reach out to others
so they won’t feel
less than less
virtual hugs
hidden in bathrooms
break rooms
library books
where someone who
hurts as much as I do
will stumble upon them
and think
they aren’t
worth less than less
