Pain shared between people are intense: anger, sorrow and betrayal. Humiliation and hurt. People hurt each other whether they intend to or not. This darkness within our nature scares us…so I sing, “Keep the darkness from my doors…”
The cloudless sky bleeds into night,
by the hour of the dusk.
Radiant in the softened light
the mellow nuances of dust.
The moon sits on her azure perch
and guides in twilight still
Over the cane fields shed her sight
dancing for the fading bright.
Keep the darkness from my doors,
prayer to the mistress moon.
Beckons to the dancer wind,
that where heart lies I be soon.
Lead me to my safe repose,
where heads still and emotions lie.
Feed my hunger, words and song
softly where my spirit cry.
In darkness sweet, her tears will fly
As they do float, away I shy.
Touch me not for I am scared,
My frightened soul tonight was bared.
Sing for me,
