THE SILENCE OF 23:23 By Immaculata Ortner All lights went off My heart stops beating for a second Keep staring at the quoted line “You can be forever off line” My heart ripped off my chest, mercilessly Speechless like I haven’t spoken before Whispering with hope Come back, come back You kept the door shut Keep drifting away Like a canoe on kavango deltas Closing the chapter of hope and affection Only me and my dark room Feels cold in its four corners No heater to heat the love No life, no affection Only me and my dark room
