Out of the depths

The Daily Post prompt is: Depth

Painting ©Olav Johan Andreassen


Out of the depths I cry,

Raise red eyes to the sky,

Yet in the depths I stay,

Call wind to blow away

The storm cloud billows,

Tears wept from willows,

For all the lives broken,

Hateful words spoken,

Venom and decay.

Night’s fallen at midday,

So in the depths I stay.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
