some times are dark.~by Tukur Loba Ridwan


 

 

some times are dark.

some times are dark. yes.
they come like rubella
with itches and rashes on a severed skin.
some times would therefore
leave scars on the skin to nurse,
as their footprints.
these traces on the skin also
become harsh and ugly
like grasps of evil hands
on an innocent body.
but when this happens
before my weary, sore eyes,
what would i do?
i would peel these old skins away
with all their rashes and spots.
i would open a new road
for a new blood to clot
within this teeming tissue.
this is rebirth.
this is how i shed dark times away
when they strike me like a skin disease.
