Purple's Platitudes

nothing but words …

ghazal

ghazal

 

with unrehearsed steps, I pace the aisle in darkness

each bitter breath condemning the child to darkness

 

the song she sings so innocently during play

reminds me of another beguiled by darkness

 

we meant to chase the sunset hand in hand once more

our words like hard to swallow vile whispered darkness

 

sweet grass gently sways, an invitation to dance

although unaccompanied, I smile through darkness

 

a bridge to memories begins to slowly fade

I peer for awhile into the foggy darkness

 

free and unbroken, I ran simply for the joy

long before I knew fears waited in wild darkness

 

But who is like God, declaring let there be light,

in the end will I be put on trial for darkness?
