Light Within the Abyss – Author Ken Allan Dronsfield


Your shadow in the darkness;

is my light within this abyss.

Breathless whispers tout the faithless;

cherished heartbeats now remiss.

Drifting home in the blackish haze;

fires burn hot in the cavernous lair.

The brimstone steeps as rhythms play;

raucous medley to the Serpent there.

A captured heart in a golden cage;

chained so bold, yet loosely bound.

escape the trap while hiding the rage;

Lest I dwell forever as the devil’s clown.

The shadow writhes in a haziness above;

guiding the way to a pathway home.

Grasp my essence; accept my love.

Treasure an enlightened dispirited soul.
