Despair’s saviour

When shadows’ footfalls stalked my toiling tread,

Grey skies convoluted me in ominous surprise;

Smog smothered my mind, pulsed my heart with dread.

Then life’s train derailed haplessly before my eyes.

With blind vision and ambivalence, I stumbled.

Faint glimmers of light appeared as but a dream,

Of a distant love whose words I now mumbled.

Then wheels taxied the runway in a silent scream.

I prayed and begged forgiveness in a church,

But my mind and my heart seemed to disagree.

Wild winds blew in, toppling spirit off its perch

Then ship’s bow tossed turning tides endlessly.

In the cold air of an evening, I heard an infant’s cry,

My senses unfurled, released in a heartfelt sigh!

    1. Thank you my friend, I really appreciate your feedback. The urge to write brought me out of hiding for the day. I’ve learnt that much of our themes are universal and glad that my writing speaks 🙂 Hope you’ve had a pleasant Christmas. Best. Chevvy.
