Rise and Shine

It crept upon me slowly
one dawn on nightmare street,
silent calls in cushioned halls
of every room to peek

Lost among the shadows
captive by the trance,
to see another world beyond
the music and the dance

Tracked the call of nature
passed every blade of grass,
felt the wound of heartache
amongst the shattered glass

Fragments of a story
forgotten by the years,
memories of love displayed
around this scattered sphere

Saw the soul of longing
reflecting eyes, I knew,
amidst an open broken heart
your light of love
shone through!

Hi Martina

Love the rhythmic movement of this piece;
it has an element of mystique
with a positive ending.

"amidst an open broken heart
your light of love
shone through!"

Well written!
