Silver Lining!

She ran, each step leaden. Toward the sunrise through the cloud.

Out of the town towards the morning her lungs aching as she screamed out loud.

Along the rails glowing silver in the pale light onward into the the coming train.

Away from all the chains that held her she runs to fight against the grain.

 

Strangely her dress hem trails heavily behind  her, dragging slowly over the sleepers.

Holding her back as if through water she was treading , suffocating like windows masked by creepers.

In the distance the train approaches sounding off it’s ghastly wail faster, faster it comes further.

At once the the silver dawn light breaks the darkness of the skies the train streaks on and devours her.

Along the the silver linings of the rails her deep red life blood flows on and on it goes.

In the sky the clouds are part to reveal a silver lining which beams down to where a blood red rose grows.

NEVERMORE

The was dark the wind was raw out o the moors arose the sound of  raven’s craw. The moon lit the path with silver glow and shadows danced along the hedgerow.

There she stood tall and dark, rake thin, and pale and her eyes held no spark, of life. Then came a fluttering of wings, bright of eye , sharp of claws and black shiny beaks to tear at things.

There stands the grave stone stark and cold she walks toward it her wings afold. Her trusty familiars close by her side drenched in the angry tears she cried.

The grave is open there is nothing there.! Stopped in shock she stands and stares. In rage her huge wings she flexes high and from her mouth an anguished cry issues forth for all to hear lightening flashes as a storm draws near!

Rolling in grief longing for what she had had before, pounding on the empty tomb’s floor!I need to see him I need his touch once more I want him back how things were before! With black wings high and head inclined the raven open his beak and with mighty  craw out came the words NEVERMORE!
