Silence in Secret Files

Darkness howls between
lock and key,
Hungry like freedom

torn by new wall, old fire,
Tears that fall from
cracked skies,

Pennants dropped on
impenitent souls,
Wandering on blocked paths,

Pulled away by silence
in secret files,
Trapped beyond light,

Beyond the prayers
echoing on narrow street,
Parched by endless patter

flung with desperate stone,
Every Friday, with
every affirmation of hope,

Pale shade borrowed and
paid back with faith,
with rejection,

Growing in the sands
with endless resistance and
sorrow of victim’s cry,

The martyr’s blood.
