– turn a light on –

Dark household,

steaming in the hour of a summer eve, and

truth be told, I’m

steaming in the shower of a messy me.

Noisy fans

sound the only voice other than my own; I

understand

sounds of silence that voice my heart alone.

~

It’s not the end of me;

I’m not dead, but

what’s here surrounding me

sits unsaid, so I

turn a light on just to be strong

if I’m feeling down. Yes I

turn a light on just to hang on

in this darken house.
