Ink Splattered Skies



I gaze upon an ink splattered sky. A lone black bird gifts me with a sunset melody. Sitting here trying to figure out where I went wrong ,feelings of sadness and sorrow over shadowing a happy song.

I walk through the trees,as they whisper sweet nothings , rustling of leaves ,making shadow dances on the mossy woodland floor. I wonder alone, Why am I here?In a life of heartbreak loneliness and fear!

Its dark now, I gaze to the skies Clear as the artic ice, on the bluest of days. Cold air breeze blows gently through my hair, as I count the stars ,twinkling brightly up there. Its amazing to think we are looking up at the past, I step evermore forward, I feel a icy blast .

This is where it ends, that neverending pain, at peace with nature,never to be seen again. As I fade away to black, into the frozen lake, I hear the calling of a owl, a majestic creature of the night , hunting in the bright moonlight.

Good bye world. I've lost my fight, under ink splattered clouds ,with the black birds song, don't be sad about me leaving, it's a blessing to me. At peace with the stars ,I'm happy now as can be .

      Such a good write Steph. Walking with nature is wonderful and nature's symphony can pull you out of the dark into the light, listen to that blackbird song so full of beauty and wonder.
