shadowlands

Since we are already on our way
…traipsing to the shadowlands
marching to the rising flames,
our feet crumbling the gravel;

Since we have set off to fight,
our hearts coaxing The Light
to fill our baskets full of words
carrying the nudity of our souls;
awakening just before daybreak’s
sweet blue hour, we write our
testaments, storing them with
greatest care, these are memories
not of accomplishment but of
our broken promises, our wounded hearts
