A Dark Bell

A Dark Bell

A moonless night

A million stars

Clouds roll over the water

Like a shroud

The air

Too heavy to breathe

All colour melts into one

A dark bell tolls

Like a desperate

Beating heart

A heaviness thickens the air

The pounding goes on

Wave after wave

In the space

Between two heartbeats

Is the door to eternity


The only option

Time melts away

Like ice from winter

And only my shadow

Is left behind

Restless and uneasy

Wandering the trails

Of waking dreams
