“Endings” by Dany Szelsky

"Endings" by Dany Szelsky

The ink spills over the torn page,
the words stained across my face.
There’s no remembrance of a caress,
only the knife carving deep its grave.

I gasp for air
but only pain I swallow.
The shadows wave beside me;
my heart beating to their rhythm.

The memories of years past
were but the flicker of a candle
that has extinguished its flame,
leaving only ashes.

I worked as a TA at university from 2017-2018 teaching the seminars of Gothic Literature, Postmodernist Literature, and Modernist Literature. I worked from 2018-2019 as a High School Literature teacher with six groups on 10th grade and one in 12th grade. I taught 7 classes to over 180 students. I am currently studying an MA in English and American Studies at Ca' Foscari University of Venice.
