Bereavement of This Total Eclipse

Another one of my poems. Written 2007.12.05 – 2007.12.07.


My heart is lost between two words in a verse
I try to call for someone to aid me
But my throat is dry,
my lips are chapped
and my tongue is numb
So I am dying in the cold tonight

Fear of the dark is closing unto me
The mountains within me forever still
You said this moment is the sanctuary of my soul
But the sanctuary is too big
for both my body and my soul
So I am dying in the cold tonight

Turning from the crepuscule of the world
Reaching for the opposite hay
Reaching for the white lands of innocence
Reaching for an alternative world
bereavement of this total eclipse you call my life
So I am dying in the cold tonight
