“And so of larger – Darknesses –
Those Evenings of the Brain –
When not a Moon disclose a sign –
Or Star – come out – within – “

-Emily Dickinson


by Carmen H Gray

Sometimes I think

In the darkest nights

When the silence is too loud

And the vacuous emptiness

Leaves me feeling


That’s when

I need to yield

To the unknown


Yet to be born
