Love and Hope

I walked a long lonely road

shrouded in darkness.

And feeling as though

I was on my way

to absolutely nowhere.

I dragged my feet

along the cobblestone roads

completely barefoot

And grimaced as the skin

sawed its way from my heels

leaving a trail of blood

following in my wake.

The bitter taste of copper

feels my cracked throat

as my entire body screamed for water,

And when i thought i could still carry on

my body collapsed beneath me,

but i still couldn't....

Bring myself to stop.

So with bleeding nails

I dragged myself on,

Hoping to see the light,

at the end of my tunnel

And praying to be covered,

In the end's illumination.......
