Darkness In Sight

In the end times, there will be shadows that walk among us whose sight will inspire fear, hopelessness and much darkness by their mere sight.  Are you ready to take this test and come out alright?   I hope so.

Allhallow's Showcase -  Bones Takes A Coffin Break

Darkness In Sight
by Michael Romani

Streaks of black
Paints the world dark
Together in our loneliness

It's in what we lack
Too much truth in our snark
That passes for your holiness

Feeling sorry for our selves
Over lunch and a bottle of wine
Ignoring truth doesn't make it less so

Running down corridors of empty shelves
Where wisdom passed as if we were doing fine
One more chorus of on with the show

Tearing at each other like savages
Distracted by our worse fears
We find that we have lost all hope

Caught up in all these ravages
We surrender to our tears
Strung out at the end of our rope

Breaking news sales the catastrophe
Looking at all of this just makes it worse
The endgame of our humanity

The real facts spilled like a mockery
With our best efforts made perverse
It's that straight shot in all this banality

Lying in bed, too afraid to dream
Praying to the sacredness of our forgiver
We close our eyes to this true sight

Canaries in a coal mine gasp their last scream
As we float down this black river
Nothing will ever turn this again to right
