Poetry Corner


Unknown

by Sak

Sorrow like a salve to draw out my heart
What does it feel?
numb, obtuse, fabricated and false
What does the mirror reveal?
emptiness hollow unrecognizable canvass
What to change how to alter erase?
but didn't I?
a huge question mark
it was not hate
it was the only way to survive
to label correct name
everyone and yet no one
You can imagine but can you experience?
the brain is a funny thing
concocting the past based on today's truths
forgetting forgotten
the forgotten
always lonely never alone
we do look at the same sky, but we see different stars
I'm looking at the dippers and the north
craving the moon to stay still
but it follows me
the dark, the night
