Pebbles in my Pocket

pebbles in my pocket

line in the sand

make that stand

as you search

for closure



draw that line

standing strong and resolute

on a pebble strewn beach

digging deep

until you find them all



then…

facing what awaits

gazing boldly and contemptuously

at that which dares

to cross that line

Is it Dark Yet?

shadows fall

darkness creeps

there is something coming

in the crawling dusk

we will lose the day

when the darkened veil

achingly descends




how long can we wait?

beyond this veil

nothingness awaits

when will it be rent asunder?

by whom?

and when they come

will they bring the morrow?
