Fade to Black – Author D.B. Hall


I’m too broken to bear malice

As remnants of love’s nectar

Drips into a golden chalice

Traveling via a river of tears


Wound me mortally

Spear me deep into my soul

Loneliness is my eternity

Adrift in in its black hole


Let my eyes fade to black

I’ll rest in eternal sleep

Bury me with a single lilac

The only beauty I’ll keep


Soaring on wings of a life reborn

I’ll rise to taste the sunrise

My heart a wall of hawthorn

I’ll forswear a deceiver’s lies


In this moment it is all too real

I’ll turn inward and meditate

Hoping I find a way to feel

Release all this hurt and hate


Take this chalice and spear

I’m ready to fade to black

I smell a fragrance so clear

A dying bouquet of lilac

About the Author

David Hall was born in a small town called Mount Airy (A.K.A Mayberry) nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains which are part of the large Appalachian Mountain chain. His early life involved a lot of traveling with his missionary parents, which involved stints of living in Mexico and Bolivia. His poetry reflects a love for nature and life mixed with a sense of the rustic Americana spirit and sprinkled with a lingering sense of the spiritual guidance infused by his southern religious upbringing. David has always been able to live in the moment enjoying it to the fullest while being able to be separated within himself seeking something more. Poetry is one of those outlets that gives him that something more. The diversity of genres and endless array of topics allow him to dive into poetry with reckless abandon or with fine-tuned precision; whichever is needed. Like a prism there are many sides of David, from the emotional connections when dealing with death, to the touch of the spring breeze on your neck hairs, David’s poetry can put you there.
