Eery in every way.
Silence in the dark.
Haunted in the day
Yet a night so stark.

Broken fragments
Litter patches of dirt.
Past lives
Are left to pervert.
Remember the times
Of a past lost.
Broken rhymes
Written from exhaust.

Lies have been hidden
Beneath our smiles.
Troubles have been ridden
With blood so vile.
A silent word written
With a deathly style.

You had to leave
This broken land.
Yet I believe
You're stuck with the damned.

Don't even speak
No not a word.
What did you seek
A life so absurd?

Go and win your own fight
Before you start running with the light.

Thank you David. I've just begun to write poetry after a period of silence, and I'm glad my poetry can still be appreciated by one of our own. Thank you, again.
