Wordless

Surrounded by chaos I have the right to remain silent

and

to swallow hard my mixed up feelings.

Witnessing other’s fear of death and pain

so

my anxiety feels like the waves of a restless sea.

Praying and and protecting is all that I can do

and

The hope that normality will be back soon.

***I wrote this poem to express my feelings regarding the COVID, in my country, Romania, schools and universities are closed for 2 weeks and also some villages are isolated. Take care of you and never lose hope dear reader***

Hollowness

I silenced my anxiety

and

I took off my dusty coat.

I sighed so relieved

cause

I can be myself now.

I look obssesively for my pen

until

I draw letters with my fingers.

Introversion

I searched at the bottom of my lungs

and

I have found the courage to exhale.

I rediscovered a forgotten sensitivity

to

black marks left on white bedsheets

I felt a pain under my right atrium

so

I got back to writing.

Emptiness

from the emptiness of my heart

i filled a paper and drought some feelings

until I didn’t understand if I wanted to get rid of them all

from the emptiness of my mind

i wrote a poem and everything already seemed more vivid

from the emptiness of my soul

i wrote a paper about the only thing I have

The words
