The Dark Country

by KatyRavensong

Age Group: Adult



THE DARK COUNTRY

I am being held prisoner
In a country from which
There seems to be
No escape.

Several times I thought
I had broken through to freedom,
Only to find myself bound again.

It is always night.
It is lonely and scary.
I even tried to dig under the walls,
But the foundation
Goes all the way to bedrock.

There have been many who escaped,
Soaring to freedom
On newly found wings.
But my time is not yet.

The most unbearable thing
About this country
Is that there is no music.
There is no music.

I cannot live wihthout music.
When someone eludes our captors
And finds the way out,
Here in the remote corners of this abyss
Are heard faint echoes of a symphony ~
Strings, horns, a drumbeat,
And the laughter
Of a soul re-entering the light.

This realm where I am imprisoned
Is only a heartbeat away
From the world of madness.
It robs me of lengths of time
Then laughs at my confusion.

But I must remain here
Until I, too, regain my wings.
Then I will fly out of this pit
Toward the sun,
Into light and music.
The resulting melody
Can be appreciated fully
Only by those who have been here.
I will be free!
