I’m mute

The words just won’t

By Shelby Hagood Published about a month ago 1 min read

I’m mute

The words just won’t

I push for them, but no

Trying to find ways to express



Sensory cues

Let me hum by your ear

Touch my hand and squeeze so hard, yes

I’ll show

Words, no

They are not all

That a person has there

Not just a boring character

Mouth closed


Watch my body

I can still interact

Still be in the conversation


You write

A mute story

Had them talk later on

That is how you developed them?

So lame

They can

Still be someone

And stay mute to the end

I’ll show you silent characters



In your hard work

To create a loved mute

Without the cutting of corners
