Black As Ashes



Light hides from me

leaving me to wonder if it still exists.

Emptiness takes it place, filling me with


My anger seethes beneath the surface

drinking in the black

Trust is swallowed whole by the darkness

Faith has become



I wear the black of ashes

A promise of more to come

A promise of an end

to pain

to emptiness

to loneliness

An end.                               A beginning.


I wear the black of ashes

I feel the black.

I wait to feel the ashes

I wait for the promise.
