Poems by Sabrina Young

 

***

Darkness invade my eyes
wings clipped and bound,
no roots beneath me,
this cocoon my only
ground.

Scale the walls of my tiny
abode, weak, a newborn
still in the womb, a diamond
lost in the night sentenced
to life to die in this tomb.

As I gather courage
my senses are sharpened
by sweet whispers of
strength that fill my
ears. Fragrance fill my nose
as I breathe the unknown .
Breaking free , life blinds my
eyes, letting go of fear that
has hovered for so many
years.

 

***

Sun rays dim
casting shadows
here I am
searching the
hollow of my 
mind

I can see
as if you
were in
front of
me, a
yesterday,
a love past,
a replay.

My heart wetted,
naked is left my
soul, stripped of
you, my only
home.

Tears gathering
in a pool at my
feet , as my
very existence
seeping slowly
swallowed into
retreat.
