Misc. Poetry by Ulane Vuorio: Cocoon of Misery, Choices, Darkness, Does Anybody See?

Cocoon of Misery


Some days

I am tight wound

like coiled spring

bundle of frayed nerves

just looking for escape

way to lash out

my frustration

I am wrapped

in black velvet

of endless night

closing around me

cocoon of misery

holding me

in rigid embrace

of my own mind

I feel like

time is running out

whichever way I turn

road is standing up

but I know deep down

there has to be

a way for life

to get better



you chose him

but he did not choose

all of you

he slapped the girl

from your past


godmother’s magic

made her sofa

a happy place

for the girl

not wanted

taking the tears

and hiding her hurt

but she came back

others judgement

made her say

that we are all

big happy family

girl wanted to stay

but girls

are not asked

and they do not

get to ask why

why did you not

choose me

I was only





In your darkness

you crave me

because of my light


and in your loneliness

you hate me

because of my light


in your greediness

you want it all

all my light


not to shine

just to have it

alone in your darkness


Does Anybody See


my head is full of words

your words of anger

that break me


into million pieces


slowly down


I am nowhere


lonely silence


I take the pieces

and put together

a new me


leave the pieces

that were yours

lying there


this new me

so fragile

and transparent


does anybody see

this new me

does anybody see
