Dark Canyon click to listen

A captive soul is this dark canyon
far below the surface of my skin
Can a poet harness an expression
filling up it's chamber walls
with light to know
there are no walls that bind?

In exploring I have gambled
Every deadend pathway have I tried
Never knowing how or why I've traveled
My green eyes seeking better places
saw before them empty spaces
as I arrived

Pick me up and set me down easy
Let your vision come to me freely
Show my soul the way to where
It might be born once more

Sing a song that love might find me
I would leave my dreams behind me
For a chance to know the peace that
I had known before

And when the darkness finds it's pleasure
dangling dizzy dreams before my life
Then the contrast flares inside my passion
the realization that I am one
with all that I have done
and will be

I remember going through thoughts like that, wondering if it would have been better had I not even started out. But I'm glad I did. What I had before was an illusion, and a tortured one at that. I guess it's good to be reminded.

Much love,
Larry
