November Poem: Lily Zifcak

Lily Zifcak

Forbidden Fears


When darkness caves in

Hope becomes a dream 


Washed away by the fears of tomorrow 

Drowning in the memories of yesterday


Crumbled to the floor 

A lifeless body is found

Enveloped in panic

Surrounded by hundreds of grief-stricken thoughts


Hands reach out 

Piercing through 

the darkness

Each hand helping to mend the fragile heart


And as sorrow starts to fade

Unidentified, the hands remain

Proof of survival

From the most dangerous thing of all
