Away With The Night

You who are with me,
who ache with me, please,
lay still, hold your breathing –
we are sinking
we sink,

beneath wings of bad mothers,
through sad voices of home
our dead limbs fall off,
our bones sleep on their own.

You who are with me,
who are silent at night,
who separate stars, who burn with out light

hold on
hold on
to the hands of these words
we are sinking
we sink

through this very dry Earth.
God isn’t softening,
we are starved by disease,
by darkness, by deepness
of the valley’s between us.

You who are with me,
who ache life away, lay still,
hold your breathing,
hold on to your life,
we are sinking
we sink

away with the night!

  1. I agree Maggie. in fact one of my Artist statements is: “Art is nothing,…nothing if not a connection” In the disjointed world these connectionc are absolutely Vital as is expression of feelings. Thanks for sharing your Poetry and thoughts. I have a book free online if you have some downtime and want to read the Poems that were inspired by my Art and informed by my Music. {I am including reviews/impressions from readers in the next edition, if you care to really absorb the work and write your feelings on it I will add it to the next edition. http://www.blurb.com/books/2922928 } Cheers! stay inspired.
