Seams Of Darkness - Poem by Jeffrey Philip Clegg

The poison in my head
Filled my heart with dread

Now I soar above my deadened soul
A coffin doth my spirit hold

Seems when I needed God the most
I could not find the Holy Ghost

My ashes float into the night
Not of life and out of sight

Seams of darkness engulfed me whole
Loneliness was my predestined role

Though I tried for years to persevere
The path too cloudy, was never clear...
