Poem -

The Black Path

The Black Path

Blindly walking the black path
Ecstasy peppered with pain
Thick raindrops splash my foreheadย 
A feeble attempt of redemptionย 
The putrid oil of sour soil
Gray death smiles in the rain

A pea soup fog
Morning walkers with dogs
Where did this journey begin?ย 
My eyes avert their questioning gaze
No sleep for days
I answer silently...ย 
With saturated soul and skin

Thank you for your lovely comment Cherie. I'm glad you enjoyed the poem, it may have took me a while but hopefully I'm getting the hang of this 'poetry thing'.ย 

I don't get much time to read others work much lately with working extended hours.

Hope you're keeping wellย  - Syd xoย

An intensely deep write! You created such a strong atmosphere, I could feel every line. Truly, during walks many things can happen inside us. Beautifully expressed! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ
