Lethean Interval - Poem by Barry Middleton
I have seen the underworld,
the velvet dark before the light,
a silent void of peace and rest,
and so I do not fear the night.
I have visited the Lethe,
the ebony cascade of ages.
In caverns far beneath the earth,
demonic fear and pathos rages.
The darkness is beyond salvation
and silent and bereft of grief.
The only blessing is cessation
of tyranny without relief.
I have seen the underworld
where we return to garner time,
to roil in dust in eons hence
that must suffice for the sublime.
