DaRK CloUds - A collaboration with Liam Mc Daid

Grey clouds the innocent sky ambushing light turns dark stumbling over a tombstone opening up cold graves When eyes become frozen behind scenes in hidden truth as a weight deadens upon the shoulders without hope A ghost from past experience consumes the present and golden sands blacken beneath your feet fallen one Deep undercurrents strains awaken in the ocean Invisible cloaked dagger pierces without mercy I pray waters calming find peace in this mortal frame as the whirlpool of desires casts an ominous spell Upon the sea of life Satanic storms enter Hell and exudes within the malevolent clouds failure Forgiveness stands at the crossroads beholden no more within promise of a dream transparent through the rain As yellow moonlight draws one pathway clearly cutting brings you safely home to love under a fragile roof Under black currents of loss when the heart returns beat in the last teardrop sorrow remained faithfully loved In collaboration with The Irish Poet Liam Mc Daid 2016

Hello Red, Congratulations to you and Liam on POTD and on a very fine piece of free verse here!! The metaphors and imagery you guy employed here are both as telling as they are exquisite. I really like the mention of the "Satanic storms" and "black currents of loss" images. This one is most certainly a "FAV" in every respect. Cheers and Best, Gary
