'Lock up your libraries if you like; but there is no gate, no lock, no bolt that you can set upon the freedom of my mind.'
― Virginia Woolf, 'A Room of One's Own'


i have cliffs
within
this shell of mine,
upon which lighthouses
of hope
stand darkly.
tidal waves of
new pain
or old
wash away their light.
fog-faded,
they crumble.
i stand alone
at daybreak,
shells crushed
in my bleeding palms
and my fingers
quiver.
my heart,
wind-burned,
is drenched ice-cold
once more.
