Back in time where tunnels broken

lay askew and the feelings gone,

faces old and new, some forgotten

stare and blink, smile and drink.


Memories erased, glorified walls

whispers of beautiful waterfalls

The dead are here, today, now

Watching their ghosts linger…


Are you afraid? I’m not!

How can I be when there’s no

fear in my heart, my mind is clear.

A moment is all I lived, all I know.


Footsteps from behind…

but no one’s there, a shadow

obscure, mad and blind

fingers translucent in the dark.


Tonight the dead are dancing

their infernal, godly dance

I care not, embraced in light

My heart is my shield.


What’s yours?
