An example submission:


A SURVIVOR’S MEMORY


I stand entangled in a web


A piercing pain enters my mind


Travelling through to my soul


I do not know how to escape this hold


That binds me so fiercely


I see others pass me by


And it’s as if my web


Is invisible to them


I desperately want to reach out


To ask them for help


But, my hands are tied


My lips are sealed


Deep beneath the darkened sky


I stand-alone engulfed in fear


And I wait


I wait for a day


When the sun will shine


I wait for a night


That I can sleep peacefully


I wait for that someone


Who will see my web


Reach out and help me


To untangle the hold


I yearn to escape
