The Deluge (Poem)

October 23, 2015

 

THE DELUGE

 

We're both too sure of silence
And in stock place misery
Never lost, no one will find us
In our land of mystery

 

Alas, shown more than kindness
In what we both perceive
And our lands would gag and bind us
If we talk of our ecstasy

 

And I won't let the rain touch down
I will stop the deluge before it hits the ground
You will find me saving this town and the world
But before I'm seen, my life will be unfurled

 

You and I to face the darkness
And fight down the hounds of hell
Sail across the sorrowed waters
And face demons we both can't tell

 

Fading light won't see the rising
Of the vexed display of Gods
But come day the world's in sea, lost
It's up to us to save the day...

 

Again...will we survive one more time?
I've yet to riddle the reason why
Forced against this coming ocean tide
Will we die one more time?

 

But I won't let the rain touch down
I will stop the deluge before it hits the ground
You will find me saving this town and the world
But before I'm seen, my life will be unfurled

 

We're both too sure of silence
And in stock place misery
Never lost, no one will find us
In our land of mystery
