Somewhere I Dare Not to Travel ~ Meleza Jali

You see

There are places,

barren places

places long deserted

places intentionally avoided



There are stories

unfathomable stories

stories left untold

stories intentionally forgotten



There are memories

harrowing memories

memories not revisited

memories intentionally buried



These places, stories, memories

I dare not to travel



These places, stories, memories

Haunt

Torment

Cripple



But,

You don’t see

that these

abandoned places,

inconceivable stories, and

veiled memories,

Constitute me.
