remembrance

i do not have the power to control what haunts beneath night's sheets nor the courage to send them packing from the depths of my mind nor the words to bid them farewell nor the freedom to learn how i am trapped my mind cries remembrance, the apple of your eye hides within a bushel of pain as a worm crawls circles around my life i long for a peck from warm lips not cold, stiffed imperfect ones like death's my lips peel beneath the folds of rare smiles and whispers of words from seeded pain my soul cries out in silence beneath the folds of life its bitter bite and darkness uncontrolled

    I just continue to love how you do not hide from the darkness of humanity, and as always your sensitivity carries burden but also righteous desire Sandra. That 3rd verse is so moving, and relatable. And I appreciate how you placed the line "I am trapped..." wow, you give such rich movement and voice to your pain. Another FAV. My friend.J.A.B.
