From Darkness

A Collaboration

Stumbling, catching breath
Through forest of black
Where dreams are scarce
Breakaway from the static

Searching, seeking light
‘tween trees like beasts
Death seething in the gloom
Catching souls that wilt

Struggling, fighting for purpose
Escape from the lingering shadows
Where regrets are abundant
The light above awaits

Climbing, rushing towards light
Away from a thousand broken promises
Inside the brightness of Heaven
Beating heart’s now even

Following the whispers of the wind
Toward a life anew
Heaven can wait another day
My time is here and now

I want to thank Rosema of A Reading Writer (italics), for lending her pen for this lovely dark piece.
