Symbols Unremembered - Poem by RoseAnn V. Shawiak
Mind meandering along pathways, housing symbols unremembered.
Meanings do not confiscate memories, they are separated, on
several opposite levels where they cannot be read or understood.
Silence, awe, hatred, are jostled and thrown about so as not
to be understood.
Images terrifyingly slap the back of a mind, reminding of
their presence, but not peering out or allowing a person to
see what they are.
Contrarily demanding to be known, while secretly hiding all
Pain, heavy, aching within a mind, causing a brain to feel
it's being crushed beyond reason.
Terrified, eyes blank out memories so they cannot be seen,
holding hands on temples, tears helplessly falling, recalling
nothing, but hurting continues to penetrate, drown, surround
