Those Who Chose Death


by Julie Dibble

Gray cloud spray
Creeping over the light of day
Dimming plans
Tied hands
Hearts
Broken and bound
They see half-gone
Never to be found
Wishing they were dug deep
Under the soil
Finality to their soul-toil
To know the joy of the Son
To love Him so
Is sometimes not enough
To divorce darkness
They answer the shadows’ bluff
Disappear into the mist
Without bliss
A-lone
A destination, not a home
