What It's Like: A Personal Story of Suffering - The Key

By Janice Veldman

She keeps it around her neck
Easy to find
If she remembers
An antique skeleton key

She holds it
Rubbing it
As if it were
Aladdin’s lamp

Her lips pert
She appears to be in a faraway land
No one speaks for fear of her losing her thought
She is searching
Ready to unlock
The precious
The dear, fond, precious
