Time in the Shadows

The darker days are calling me back
Seducing me to their grim place
The place where void and emptiness
Sweep me in without a trace

Temptation bids with a heavy rap
My thoughts and my words slow to come
Whispered promises of quiet peace
Hypnotic, the beat of their drum

Shivered voices on my neck
Tasting their breath on my flesh
Calling for me to give them my soul
False hope of a tomorrow yet fresh

“Curl up my little child
Life’s too big for such a sweet girl
Lie here still in your bed, my sweet
Let your weariness unfurl”

I’m sinking down, I’m falling in
It is hard to remember my name
Yet so soothing, the voice of numb
If I want it, void is mine to proclaim

OMG Some one is calling
“Lift up your head to the Lord”
“Oh no, this place is sweet and dark
Nothing but nothing here, nothing more”

“Baby girl, it is time to leave
Raise up your hand and take mine”
“But Lord I am not ready yet
I will rest here, and then I’ll be fine”

All the while, the stinking beasts
Leer from posts far away
Lest they disturb my place of naught
Far is where they will stay

In the black, in my room
In my bed, in my soul
They weave the darkness ’round my head
Turning my thoughts to black coal

I need this time away from my head
I need this time away from my life
This is where the thinking stops
This is where solitude is rife

Just a while longer just one more day
Just for now, just for a time
Just for a season, until I can live
In the shadows I’ll live I’ll rhyme

I love and appreciate feedback. Feel free to let me know what you think. Bless you lots, Easter Ellen
