The tree gap

The tree gap

How is it to have a gap in you

a part of you you do not accept

a part of you that you prefer to wipe out

and see blankness where you it should have been


You have a node in your throat and your jaw

you want to shout, you want to cry, you want to reach out

but you can’t as the tendrils of fear make sure everything is kept within


To the world, you only show the surface

greens and blues and mauves painted on your face

hiding the storm that brews in your heart


About Erik Vincenti Zakhia

Dear all, I will share with you many of my poems, short stories, drawings and paintings telling of my journey of self-discovery and my reflections about life, love, art, spirituality, sexuality, kundalini rise, and twin flames. You will also come across many paintings by Chantal Peguiron that are intimately related to my artwork. They all fall within the realm of Hazen. If you like it, don’t hesitate to subscribe and follow me on social media! May you have an inspiring visit!
