Echo In The Cave

by Alice   Jun 2, 2018

We are all heir to Sheol’s fumes:
the thousand shocks,
in skulls like tombs
we stack them with the dead:
a putrid pox
love left unsaid-
so we echo in the cave,
and fear to face
what we must brave.

    A vivid dark piece with dynamic impact, strangely compelling read. Best wishes Milly x
