An Orphan’s Silence

I hide in the shadow

  of another’s fear

  so the voice may go away

 

And then left

  inside an orphan’s silence

  to recount every wordless day

 

To walk a path

  that another breaks

  under a dark forbidden sky

 

Crying those tears

  by another made

    —my pen bereft and dry

 

(Villanova Pennsylvania: April, 2015)
