In one go… #1

Waiting for The Microscope

It’s cold.
It’s freezing.

Inside, outside,
around.
Deep inside.

The way can’t be seen.

Lights off
and dark.
And shadows.

Shadows
of memories
that fill up the brain.

They leave the mind breathless,
and weigh down the heart.

Glass fogged up,
ice, wind that strips away the skin
and the soul.

Slippery steps and precarious balance.

Balance?
What balance?

Truth teetering.
Truth obscured by torment.
Truth damned.

Truth?
Which truth?

The one we want to tell ourselves, maybe.

It’s cold.
It’s freezing.

Inside, outside,
around.
Deep inside.

Will winter pass?
Will spring come again?

Who knows…
We’ll see.

Maybe.
