Behind the Silver Curtain

Dear grandfather,

where have you been?

For many, many years

you have not been seen.


Since your disappearance

I have not recovered

from the pain in my heart

that I have long suffered.


The last time I saw you,

you brought me a gift.

A simple silver curtain

before you went adrift.


I hanged it by my window,

by my comforting bed.

Then so I heard

whispers in my head.


The noises came by my window

while I'm sound asleep.

Even though I'm sleeping,

I could still hear words creep.


The noises.

The horrible noises.

The sobbing, throbbing

and the terrifying voices.


The whispers still going.

I can't go to sleep.

I hear a familiar voice

crying as they weep.


Hours have passed.

I can't take it anymore.

I leave my bed

and stepped on the cold floor.


I go over by my window

and there I could see.

The most unsettling sight:

my grandfather's body.
