eloquence of torture

November 13, 2020


a figure is silhouetted against the sanguine sky / tread lightly over the ghosts of our dead memories / weeping / bloody tears / eloquence of the torture / we suffer / there is beauty / in this never-ending agony /  it is serendipity / that we meet / today / in this ethereal world / a translucent wall / separates us from what we love /  no matter how hard we struggle / we are restrained / a homesickness / to return to a home we never had / a world we never knew.

    Absolutely beautiful. "tread lightly over the ghosts of our dead memories" — I love this line so much, such a delicate image. The whole piece feels so raw, if that makes any sense.
