… I stand poised on the edge of an abyss.
Gazing down into the seductive blackness.
… The darkness beckons me-
with a siren’s sound.
Making irresistible promises-
of scenery , safety, solitude…
… I know its coaxing voice-
is disguising the lonely comfort,
… Yet, how I long to be cradled-
in that stillness.
How I yearn to be held-
in that sweet silence.
And snug such alluring lullabies.
… As I yield to the BLACK SIREN,
captivated by its singing silence.
… I am distracted by a shaft of light,
piercing my consciousness.
A gentle voice calls softly… “WAIT” !! …
