Brightening.

Dsc02480by Michelle Seyner04 Oct 2019

I write the words I didn't say,
spell them out, letter by letter,
each syllable makes me feel better,
it's like re-writing myself - in a way.

Each sentence makes me feel more strong,
each stanza 's making my life brighter,
each poem makes the darkness lighter,
and makes the frightening night less long.
