In sombre light by Adri Buys

Poem

It takes me over
completely and undiluted
It chokes me
leaving me – feeling stranded
Hopelessness overwhelms
an already butchered heart
I cannot see
beyond the hazy views
that clogs my eyes
Feelings of betrayal
races in little footsteps
of bitterness on my tongue
It burns and stings inside of me
Tears are no longer
my companion in relief
I am close to the anger
that lives in the tingle of my toes
Trapped behind an invisible door
knocking with grim amusement
against the absence of anything solid
yet my knuckles are strangely bruised
there is evidence
that I’m living with the shadows on my wall
