Gather stories with experience and time.
Yet, inside us a child lives
Breathing in moments forever gone.
Fear exhales along with sighs
Sitting caged in my heart.
Words tangled flow in my mind
Knots and knots in thoughts.
Choking on emotion, a cry escapes
This empty throat of mine.
Each night in darkness, I pay homage
To twists and miracles of time.
