Ankara II

Your soul is searching again...
I can feel the depths of its anguish.

There, on the edge of the black-mist horizon...
That faint outline, wings spread, a dull, angry red.

I can feel the hunger and thirst emanating from you...
It's palpable, it makes me parched, hurting inside.

Seeking again, I know I can't reach you...
Tormenting me with a memory lost among the eons.

I can't break free of this chain that is around me...
I struggle to break myself free, knowing it is futile.

Your soul has been patient, waiting in sorrow...
Waiting, I know, for centuries perhaps.

Until I've learned this lesson and my soul knows its name...
I will be feeling the depths of your souls anguish for eternity.

Hi Amahlala

I wonder if you could consider changing the text from black to white or other light colour? I am not able to read it against that very dark red background.

Kindest regards

Hi, amahlala,
Until I've learned this lesson and my soul knows its name... The searching soul is an eager student. Perhaps some lessons require a different teaching approach. Thanks for sharing Ankara II.
