Sonnet XXXV


we all have a dark place within our souls,

but it’s not the realm of demons and trolls.

It’s that space where our truest selves are stored,

where we cannot face what we most abhor.

That place of secrets we cannot admit,

the scattered pieces that don’t seem to fit.

The truths we ignore to avoid the pain,

the haunting spirits we shackle and chain.

Locked away and forgotten, we pretend,

perhaps they’ll stay there, never rise again?

Few ever willingly visit that place,

but sometimes life does bring us face to face

and the only way out is always through,

it’s a journey we all, alone, must do.
