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





You don’t see

that these

abandoned places,

inconceivable stories, and

veiled memories,

Constitute me.
