Echo’s of Whispers Past

Between the light and the darkness
good and evil
the poet stands completely alone
his hands holding
back the light of day along with the
dark of night
sometimes the light surges forward
other times it is
the darkness that rules the sword that
is his penmanship
yet through each and every assault the
versifier stands
true to his chosen craft even as in time
he grows weaker
until at last the moment predicted will
arrive when the
light and the darkness shall meet each
other face to face
and then the versifier shall be no more
no peace or rest
shall the poet find in this life nor within
the life to come
for only his words will be left behind
fluttering in the breeze
long forgotten echos of whispers past
