ANGUISH (a Quadrille)

You  made yourself small
in the shadows you lived
afraid to be seen or heard
your  tears rocked the walls 
of claustrophobic nights
silent, they flowed
like the ghost of your lost dreams
you wished to hold again
but not in this light.

  1. I like the subtle rhyme you have going here with nights/light. There’s also something about the blockish form of this piece that makes if FEEL claustrophobic. Well done.
