The Vessel - Poem by Nan Sikora

Darkness is the place
where fear dwells best...
It reaches into the very
corners of my existence.

Where rivers of words flow
endlessly into each other,
causing a tumult of emotions...
a stirring of doubt...
a mixture of pains......

When the river ends
and the flowing ceases,
will there be anything left
but an empty vessel?
