Dark Lightning


Memories of ages haunt you

slipping into silence

waiting for the crash

falling through the winds and empty spaces


Demons of distraction taunt you

fighting in the darkness

hear the weapons clash

sparks light up their blades and empty faces


Stand alone where none can find you

getting onto stillness

watching thought collapse

around you now the howling tempest paces


At the point where none can bind you

dropping into consciousness

blinded by the flash

now free of thought, clear awareness races


It is now time to face the storm

leave house and hearth so safe and warm

Its time to ride, ride the dark lightning
