dark chapters-genesis …

copyright cwmartin 2011

and it came
to pass
that those
who dwelled
in the shadows
gained dominion
over the earth
while those
who sought
the light
continued to pray
for sins
yet to be committed
so
the darkness grew
but a few souls
lit bonfires
of desperation
fueled by hope
as beacons
but
as hope
was exhausted
war
the ignorance
of mankind
spread across
the globe
and the darkness
was upon
all
the lands

genesis…

my hands pass through
each dream
as i reach out
moist fog
lingering
only
for a moment
then
evaporating
into the ether
leaving me
standing alone
with my prayer book
turned to a page
without
words
