Ceaseless Night

Layers…

Night ceaseless followed ceaseless night
Dark notes oppressive chimed
Hung like weighted bodies
Impatient yearning for the drop.
Sounds from the blind unto the blind
Muted tones in black seas lost
Sank beneath the learning
Which drowned the better part of me.
And words nailed to a killing-tree
Ear-splitting spilled their truths
To blacken out the light
And crucify the force within.
As lightless sightless through the pain
Drawn on by magnet’s charm
And hanged upon a gale
The lesson left for none to learn.
Impatient yearning for the drop
Dark notes oppressive chimed
Hung like weighted bodies
Night ceaseless followed ceaseless night.

I write poetry/prose/stories/short stories/verses for children/sketch/and have 6 chapters of a novel sitting there like that half eaten trifle in the fridge or bottle of Jack Daniels because something makes you afraid to eat it or drink... right now.. I am a proud Geordie from England's northern hemisphere and the beautiful city of Newcastle upon Tyne. I live with my lovely husband who came all the way from sunny California just for me, and my favourite animal, Bobble, our dog. I am a member of Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth and wish we could all do more, especially today, when such a lot is wrong.
