I retreat into myself, and can not
Speak of this and then.
My eyes turn inward into the night
Of dreams I exhumed from this life
In soundless whispers from yesterdays
Goodbyes never said.
As I walk into the light
Knowing I’ve left so much of me behind
In the darkness.
Will you hold me close
So I don’t miss them and those
That I carry with me in open wounds
I inflicted on myself.
