Shadowed Realities

Poem By Sarah Breanna Andrews

I sit in a darkened room,
Dreaming of you.
Of the day when I shall hear your voice
And see your face.

When skin touches skin,
What will happen then?
Will you fade from this reality?
Will I be consumed from within?

But that day shall not come to pass,
For this time of shadow will not last
The cold light of day begins to show
O’er the sill of my window

As the dawn sun rises,
My hopes for the future flee.
But before the left I saw,
Not just you and me,
But this shadowed world united,
A family, living free.

But what would happen,
Should skin touch skin?
Would you fade from this reality?
Would I be consumed from within?

No, you will not,
For I will not let you,
Not while you’re still needed here

No, I shall not.
For you will not let me,
Not while this world still needs me.

To heal our shadowed world
And bring again the dawn of unity
We must stand together,
Skin touching skin,
And heal this shadowed world from within.

The Wide World

You sit at your bedroom window
Watching the open sky
You never see what is below
Do you wonder why?

Dawn Has Come

Dawn has come,
O’er the fields of hay.
As heady as golden rum,
Is the clear light of day.

Listen And You Will See

You say you listen but you never do
You’re never there when I need you.
You’re listening to music, chilling in your room
Thinking all the thoughts you think of the worlds impending doom


The wind sighs
As the seraphim falls
The stars cry
And the world grows small

Muse Of Light And Dark

Sitting, waiting
Pen in hand
What am I making
In this far away land?
