kristallnacht (the night of broken glass)

April 20, 2013

dark shell of my soul
forbidding – i wanted it that way, for
i hope no one enters and plunges his evil words into me

that is why
the fortress is locked
lights are on but flickering
still afraid
although i have placed on my own lips a smile
a laugh emanating from my lungs
but if they say that the eyes are the windows to the soul
you will see broken glass and flames
when you look into mine

someday, however,
the windows they will open
and the one who acquires entrance –
blessed, blessed will he be!
riches of friendship, luxuries of compassion
and all treasure abound

but for now
the dark shell of my soul
encloses a realm of glory and sweetness and light
