“To Unburden Grief” – Poem

Darkness is a brutal kindness

In the coldest and warmest remembrances,

Of each thing lapsed so far in the past,

That I cannot tell

What flavor are my tears.

So much sheltered,

Out of the cold,

And so very bold

When released, for me to see

With eyes, ablaze

On the only ever known cruelty.

Like diamonds that soften themselves

To release their sparkle

Upon my hands.

I am blinded

Only by my denial.
