Tortured Light

Tortured Light

This light wavers, bends

emanates from fading spectrums

inside grieving, lifeless winds.

It spoke once, a voice of dance and songs,

brightness left to diminishing wince

now where silence belongs.

It felt once, a passion ocean deep,

left to embers burning, whirling

into cries that cannot weep.

It saw once, the rays of subtle

paradise, now blinded by the

ebony folds that hold it in its vice.

It knew its brilliance once,

captured rainbows for a while,

this tortured light God wanted back

so Heaven could see it’s smile.
