in silence i am screaming I opened myself up, while keeping distance to reality. I am a disturbance, while becoming one with my surrounding. I wanted your attention without words, by just being me. You saw me. - You stared at me. The white stare going through my existence, crashing into everything I am standing for. - In this specific moment and always. Society of the spectacle. I am a representation of what I am standing for and more. I pushed you away - by being myself. A woman of colour sharing her thoughts. A woman of colour that wants to be heard. Breathing- eye contact. ___________________Breathing- eye contact. ______________________________________Grounding my body Breathing- eye contact. ___________________Breathing- eye contact. I am stepping out of the system. A system marked by fast living and ignorance. A system filled with judgement. A space in which is no air to breath. Moving entities, their mind occupied with the images on a screaming screen. The kind of screaming that gets attention. Breathing- eye contact. ___________________Breathing- eye contact. _____________________________________Grounding our bodies Breathing- eye contact. ___________________Breathing- eye contact. A dialogue that never happened. I am still screaming in silence.
