Out of the depths

The Daily Post prompt is: Depth

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.
