Millennia – Mitchell David Ring (The Light is On)

A stirring in primeval shadows

given out to dreams that fell from the sky

blind eyes know only the promise of light

and grasping in the shadows to find it

These are they who drink from the fountain of consciousness

who live and die and live again

watching millennia cross the skies above

this world spinning in death and pain and shadow

desperate only to escape the crying out

for some light to pierce through the night

and to walk where shadows do not fall

under a black sun that never sets

away on the edge of horizon’s downfall

out beyond the sea upon whose empty shores they stand

I am a Social Worker by day and an artist/writer by night. I use the written word in an attempt to make sense of the secret worlds and dysfunctional dynamics that lurk beneath the facades of our daily interactions. I am not sure how my writing styles are characterized, nor am I overly concerned about it. I am immensely enthusiastic about music and often connect better with songs than I do people. I also have an intense appreciation for quality wines and whiskies, frequently consuming them in excess. I like things that smell good and struggle to manage the symptoms of a life-long relationship with depression. So, why "grumpygorman"? Spend some time here and find out...
