POEM: The Way



i can’t seem to find my way
alone in the darkness
a cocoon of pain sticks to my body
like hot oil
searing unseen scars deep within my flesh
silent words slither around my brain
to seek shelter among the ashes and soot
a lead weight sits upon my chest
i’m almost there
at home with my despair
i climbed as far as the eyes can see
but now I crawl deep into the earth
in search of my door, of silence, of peace
alone in the darkness and solitude
alone with myself in the cold damp earth
i have found my way…
