Dark Passages

It is not

the present darkness

that combines

in patterns beyond sight

secret spite slithers unintended

coolness of no light

hiding my lack

warmth is the only thing missing...

for i am not worthy

of the paleness of inner light

non illumination is my lot

so sparrow's spirit

cannot fly my soul has lost

the riddle of gloves

the nooks and turnings

in dark passages...

i stumble as amble

in paths of words

and the scripture that is loaned

from a glimmering world

spiral door.

Sings on the washboard of my ribs

a song to give me quiet strength

and so the darkness does not stain....

A little sad and haunting, but also inspiring. Good imagery.

This sounds so very sad my dear friend...

May you find the light which secrets itself imprisoned within the cage of your ribs.

I wish you light, love and peace Andrew.
