Darkness wraps me like a blanket

Enveloping me in its cold confines

I feel warmth creeping up,

Alarmed, I jerk my feet in.

I peer outside at the glare,

Frightened, I crouch back inside.

My eyes seek dark corners in the dawn light,

But all the niches are irradiated.

A new day is unfolding,

I must put on my veil, walk out,

Pretend I’m ecstatic.


There is a void inside me.

Filled with all the unsaid.

It grows with time.

Distance makes it stronger.


I sit all alone.


Recalling moments.

Feeding the void.


Some words are leaking out.

But it doesn’t make much sense.

Unfinished jigsaw.

O, saying is forbidden.
