One Poem by Eva Silver

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Secret Solitude

Autumn leaves beneath my bare feet,
A moment of solitude before the family
Awakes, in my nightdress, I close my eyes,
I breathe, the steady stream carries shades
Of fire from the trees, I catch my reflection
Amongst the floating leaves, I imagine what
It must feel like to swim through the icy water,
To feel the rapid flow of energy spike through
Every inch of my body, shackled by the chains
Of society, I am what they want me to be,
But I yearn for freedom, a caged bird
Can only dream.
