tonyv Posted May 19, 2009 Share Posted May 19, 2009 The following poem is a collaborative effort that was open to the participation of all members. Goldenlangur started it as a topic titled ANY TAKERS? in the Dedicated and Collaborative Works forum. In addition to Goldenlangur, Aleksandra, Tinker and I participated. Aleksandra gets credit for the title. Beyond the Light With the sinking sun, I unclasp my grasp on day and bury its gaze with lumps of tears that magnify my doubts and fears in moonlight. In the track of night, they rear their heads and gallop; my heart keeps pace with the rumble of their hooves in this shadow-less valley of my mind. Zero-dark-thirty. Some souls are at rest. Others, their flesh unshed, linger in a prism of pain. The grave mocks the meek and the weak of heart. Each sunset marks time with the last, another day gone, rippling beyond reach, beyond words, growing a path to nowhere ... and everywhere. I stand at a crossroad, black-topped, and snaking out of sight.
