Reaching Out

Captured In the moment When darkness erases our reason We lose ourselves in the quietness Deafened to the song of living We drown ourselves with tears Bent in two as we release the dread Our heart in conflict with our soul Buried In the lightless nightfall In the arms of empty hearts Unearthing a hollow hopelessness Stifling The possibility within ourselves As we are numbed by fear Frozen and isolated Sometimes We are blessed when someone With grace, kindness and reverence Reaches To catch our hand to give us The strength we could not find With hope that illuminates our faith Lifting us To be tall in our spirit Be joyful in our love To find our tomorrow Bless the hands that hold us September 13, 2020 Song I. - Cold - Quiet Now Poetry Contest Sponsored by Rob Carmack
