A Deeper Introspection

"Girl in a Black Dress" - Kay Sage, 1921
“Girl in a Black Dress” – Kay Sage, 1921

in the

silent stillness

when the

tears

have dried

when all

that is

left

is a

lingering

malaise

gnawing at

the heart

the soul

one wonders:

what happens

now?

 

in the

quiet loneliness

when the

bitterness

begins to

fade

upon one’s

palate

and all

the nightmares

recede into

memory,

one has

to ask:

where to

from here?

 

i have

no answers

not now

not yet;

all i

have

is shards

broken

sharp

jagged edges;

what good

what use

can they

be?

 

but it’s

as good

a beginning

as any;

and from

these ashes

perhaps

phoenixes

may rise

and fly.
