Swallowed by the dark

Swallowed by the dark short poem

the desire “to be” has made me so
lost my “Querencia” in transit
the crack in my soul ( for the light to get in )
has been filled-up with “God knows what”
where is my Elysian that I dreamt of
I’m not me ,

Learning was my desire ,
not – “to be taught”
it took its toll and I’m in a fire
that doesn’t hurt (burn) me
but I see ashes falling around
I’m supposed to be a vagar
but instead ,
they made me walk in a straight line
crying for existence
please just let me be …..

Dark Cloud

Dark Cloud prose poem

Dark cloud looming. Moving slowly. But it’s there. Creeping in front of the sun’s path, dimming the light, inch by inch. Will it settle? Will it stay? Will it slide on by and keep on it’s way? Is there rain
