Perhaps I am a warning sign

All barred windows

And crumbling walls

Something from a horror film.

But even those crumbling walls

Are walled off from sight

Until every layer

Of this onion

Is made of brick and mortar

And beyond it all

Safely hidden

Is a pain too deep to speak.

It sets itself

Beyond the reach of words

Expressed only

By walls ~ Caroline A. Slee
