Death And Beyond - Poem by jennifer jane pryce

I dreamt a dream last night, with script, and lights
And commentary, all came to life
This dark man appeared and wandered in
And wanted me in his life

I was meeting him in places unseen
Brave, I thought, and smart and kind
I met and followed him into his world
Walking not too far behind

‘T was my mistake as he was a fake
His charm was tainted with grime
His soul forgotten, he'd lost his way
And he wanted to steal mine

Led astray, for a moment for the want in me
The want to belong, and to find
Another soul like me, I thought, but then
Alas my faith was too blind

The one your thoughts go first with
Take heed I said, pay attention
Your instincts are true, and the voice it is clear
And they are your sole’s intention

I left that man standing alone
Sought the darkness out on my own
Better that and to follow my own truth
Than lay with him and become a mere stone

Would be Death of my soul, it would flicker then die
And light chased out far beyond
Take heed my child, I said to myself
You have just survived death and beyond………
