The Mortal Man

The Mortal Man

Long Dark Coat Clad…

Hair Black

Black Stomping Boots of Fading Light

So busy looking Forward…

Rarely Looks Behind

Forward Skies of Powder Periwinkle Blue

He Casts a Gaze Back…

Over his shoulder

To Catch a Blackened Cloud…

The Size of a Sea

It Follows Thee

Look how it Starts to Rain Now

He Pulls in His Coat…

Brings Down His Head

From Pocket brings forth Bottled Light

“Hmm… Only Three Left”

“Looks Like I’ll Fade”

“Like All The Rest…”

And so Waves

“Come Blackness… Come”

“I Beckon Thee”

Must Learn to Swim

This Blackness It Brings

“I Shall Not Go Alone…”

“Though Skies Have Changed…”

“My Heart Remains…”

Feeling… Warmer

Beating… Harder

Than Ever it Has Before

Though Cold Front Comes…

Like Beating Drum

I’m Stronger…

Than I Ever Was

I Love The Rain…

And Welcome The Cold

I’m Not Nearly Done
