Darkness.

DARKNESS

Dedicated to Robin Williams 

 

Darkness, shade hopeless plight

Adrift in murk, tether gone

Sinking, fearing another fight

Sweet memories hurt the night

 

Tenuous hold, easy to slip

Rocked by faint wind

Sliding under cover, another dip

Be still, be still or lose the grip

 

Plunging, nausea, faces blurring

Behind impregnable gauze

Meaningless babble inferring

Fault within, self-incurring

 

Silent scream, burst to rage

Barely contained

Again and again, no gauge

No means, no fresh page

 

Separated by perception

Incompatible with life

No tuner, no reception

Incapable of deception

 

Day after day after day

Never above never below

Taunting melodies play

Then fade, to black give way

 

Breathe in breathe out

Pass time, don’t push

Wait, hold and endure doubt

Trapped in a spiritual drought.

 

Rushes in, closing out

Hope and heart

A word here, a look there

Such weight crushes light.

 

Held by impossible hope

Ready to cloak

Gates slam shut

At every turn.

 

Endure some more

It wont be long now

The night is coming

Sweet sleep eternal waits.
