Poems by Uma

my heart is empty

like the streets

once crowded by people


it’s so quiet


I listen to music

to try and make it go away

but the internal loneliness remains


this past year has felt like

one of those dreams

you just can’t wake up from


you are awake enough

to vividly feel every single bit of it

yet unable to return

to the real world


my motivation

comes in waves

while I constantly switch

between the states of

feeling nothing and

feeling everything at once


I’ve been endlessly swimming

in the vast sea of my thoughts

I’m tired

yet there is nothing but sadness

around me



Uma Jordan Ferbežar, Gimnazija Vič
