The caress of light on my skin hurts.
So I turn away.
But the shadows' silence
Screams through the bones of my skull.
And I turn from them too.
The thread-thin path beneath my feet
Cuts in; lending tremors to the liquid heaviness felt
Through each nerve.
And so I kneel, but even that
Pains my spine and corsets my lungs.
Bent, hobbled,
Tortured by the silver tracks of tears
Slicing my cheeks.
I wait.

I pretty much think I know where you're coming from, and if I am on the right track, lady, you painted a very good picture of something that isn't so pretty!
