Beyond The Abyss

Beyond The Abyss

written by: Francisc Edmund Balogh

 

Let’s open the window
of this morning and
let the night fly out
like a nocturnal butterfly
with all the bitter struggle
of the darkness to turn into
dawn.

This new beginning is a dew drop
that drips down the neck of time,
to satisfy its alcoholic need
for consumption.

Our souls, bound, intertwined
dandelion seeds, flying above
the wide open, yawning abyss
of the hunger of passing.
