the hallowed walls of life and death

in darkness i escape
walking through the hallowed
walls of life and death
through the doors of the unknown
searching for the answers
seeking the truth
each time i get a little closer
i am pulled back into a vortex
i swirl throughout time and space
breathless waiting for answers
but my questions remain hanging
on by a thread…..never answered

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

life calls me back
whispering sweet nothings
in my ear
promises that have never been kept
songs that have never been sung
wishing for the dance of life
do i return?

~~~~~~or~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i hear death
with its sickle banging
upon the floor of time
promising me peace
and everlasting life
in a place of complete joy
and happiness
to worry no more
to slip into the one endless sleep
to the place where each and everyone
must go whether wishing to or not
wishing for peace
do i grab onto death’s hand?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

i continue to swirl between
the promises of life and
the promises of death
holding onto a fragmented life
tortured for either door
that opens is not what i seek

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

my search continues
dancing between the two doors
hearing all the promises
and yet i doubt life
as much as i doubt death
my quest continues
where will it end
i need answers
i need the truth

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the hallowed walls of life and death
