We write first in blood and tears, then go over in ink.

Refrain – Dark Lands

Thanks, Daniel Postlethwaite, lonewolfpoetry and MesAyah, for following my blog.

This piece is part of my Bright Lands story.

Dark Lands

The dark lands, the dark lands,
Bleak and blasted dry lands,
I rush through my lands,
On God’s gift to me.

Behind me, warm my back but wanely
The Bright Lands, the Bright Lands,
Farther and faintly,
Just a memory.

The Bright Lands, the Bright Lands,
Once upon a time our land.
We walked holding hands,
Him and me.

Why this gift?
Why this river?
Why this current carrying me?
Why did he let me go
Why didn’t he hold me back
Why did he say
“I’ll wait and weep…
Come back.”
