The Alluring Road

The Alluring Road

written by: William Wright, Jr.



Drawn into the falling rays of light
Where a journey unfolds
The alluring road
That curves out of view

Time is turned into a swathe of broken glass
A meaningless glimmer
Strewn far behind me

Its sheen softly fades
The farther I stray
Through the veil of white
Beyond the spires of home

Beyond the shrieks and calls
Tearing through the trees
From the hearts I’ve left hollow
Worn and gray
