All the Long Way

- jan-u-wine
All
the long way,
I saw you:
 
All
the long way,
you fell.
 
Never
shall I forget
your face
there
in the heated
Dark,
our shadows
hideous puppets
thrown
in bloodied relief
upon the wall.
 
Never
can I forget
my own voice,
 
crying out
words
I should
not
say....
 
Words I can not
say....
 
Words I
must
say.
 
 
My voice....
 
crying out....
 
Rage.
 
Pain,
 
Loss.......
 
Sorrow.
 
On moonless nights,
in dreams,
I kneel there,
still
and see the white
frightened
gleam
of your face
and hear the diminished
sound
of your cry
rising
to meet mine.
 
All
the long way,
I saw you:
 
All
the long way……
to
redemptive peace…..
you fell.
