Winter Tilts

by Rania Moallem   Dec 23, 2020

You often flare in darkness,
and I see you in the dim side
of the moon.
Your gloominess passes to me
like bitter, sinful blades.
My halo wanes
but I stand still by the sun
in every winter solstice.
And I know,
in vain I hold on and wait,
for your ill-lit path
to compensate me for my lost stars
and for your eternal noise
to apologize to my constant silence.

    "Your gloominess passes to me
    like bitter, sinful blades."

    These lines gave me shivers, the simile was perfect and original. When I write sometimes I feel like I am struggling to find new words/my words, to say something that has been said 1,000 times before. This simile is exactly that.
