In My Silence
by Avery  Robertson

An image in glass
a transparent stare
watches the drizzle of
blood stained tears

whisper

"You cannot harm me
I don't even fear you"

(anymore}

There are lights

(somewhere)

in the background 
of broken limbs
where sunlight flees
and rain clouds form

My treasure 

dims

as I await my faith
in the darkness
with hands clasped tightly

where I stand ankle deep
in the sand and stone

Hungry and beaten

I let go 
as my love goes

skittering in front of eyes
that have seen too much
my love blow softly on ears
refusing to hear your voice

yet, hands reach out too

close the door
as the mind screams

LET ME BE...

in my cold steel silence.
