Unraveling the Surreptitious of April

Camel cigarettes occupied the apartment like a miasma

Slithering through the condensed rooms occupied with darkness

Voices continuously whispering detestable disputes

Out of body experiences transformed into nightly sacraments

Exploitation and anguish occupied the pages of her journal

Riddles sealed away in damaged closets

Brown chair blemished from scorched ashes

Epitaph reads April 98’

Nineteen years have come and gone

Your name engraved in white stone

An aide-mémoire I once lived in a nightmare

Unraveling the layers that masked my memory

Intertwined with confusion and clarity

Like a serpent shedding its skin

Only scars left of the past

No longer a victim

I am a survivor
