Call Me By My Name

Call Me By My Name

a Poem By Raquel Swann

It’s dizzying,

As I twirl round and round

Arms extended

Reaching out for someone

To slow me down

Dissect my soul.

Comprehend.

I refuse to pause

And wait for

Someone to match my speed.

Blinding circles

Of what once was

And what will be.

This is me now,

Spinning myself into a cocoon,

Ready to transform

Into something else

Not yet defined.

With confidence,

I lose sight of the past,

Forget what you know

I almost don’t exist any longer.

Call me by my true name,

For I will not answer to another.
