“Razor Wire Women Transfixed”: Drawing and Poem by Valencia C.

2 Nov

How much longer
will the night last?
Nightmares cost lives
but sweet dreams are priceless.
A dream that will sweep you away
perhaps is your wish,
to take you to a place
where loved ones are kept
Keep on wishing then. . .
Therefore it all means hope
and not everything is yet lost.
After all you will reunite
with the ones you most want.
From that world apart
were captured; they still are.
There, time has been upheld
So the dark night slowly flows
and hours are continuously spent
yearning for twilight.

    Wow. What a striking image. The depth of it (both literal and figurative) is so powerful.
