Selection 13 of


by Nicholas John Street
when I try to speak
some force of silence
renders every truth falsehood
a glimpse of Your spark of light
turned my sun black

like the man chained
in Plato's Cave
facing the shadows
i paint shadows
with shadows

but quietly in my heart
glows a small burning ember
i shield it with my hands
and blow on it gently...

the fire had almost died

forgive me
