where the darkness? (poem)

0

where the darkness?

where the night?

come,

giver of light

extinguish thy fire

that i may hide

i seek a cloak

that may cover me

that i might be

enwrapped

solitary

that i may unburden

my troubles

in your omnipotent being

that i may silently weep

alone

that no other may share

the bitter tears

the pain

it seethes

through my very entrails

it consumes me

mercilessly

i beseech thee night!

bear me upon thy fiery wings

i flee

i long to flee

far away

to join eons

of light

of night

to rid myself

of mortal trappings

to seek Charon and

journey the river Styx

where darkness

is forever

i long

for

what?

No time for mourning (poem)

0

There’ll be no time for mourning when the dying is done

no time for mourning when the dying are gone

no time for mourning when the darkness falls

no time for mourning when the darkness calls

no time for mourning with the morning sun

no time for mourning because life goes on.
