the puzzle

in the uneasiness of speech
lies hidden what brought them here
decades of smouldering embers
now turned into a apinful blaze

in the darting eyes lies hidden
what they refuse to confront
what froze their spines or bit their neck
silence not words 
evasion of answers
they show just this shell
not the ghosts they brought
who am I to argue
who am I to help

haze of dreams diffuses
the mind drags itself through mud
or is it a sea
both so dark
stuck or sinking
grasping for the warming rock
vague soothing quick a smile
it’s you for me to hold onto
when sleep sends its terrors
until they are gone
and only me and you remain
