Abandon

Unafraid of the darkness I built greatness from the abyss, setting each shadow alight with the promise of life.

Tears fell from my eyes and the waves crashed against the rocks, the sigh from my soul calling forth from each corner any willing to breathe.

But the Earth turned tirelessly, and I have watched in stillness as you embraced the darkness I fought and I have seen how it seeps from your heart and corrupts what beauty I imagined.

I have listened as you christened the evil you hold, never hearing spill from your tongue the names of your fathers, your mothers, your sons and your daughters.

There was a time when you knew my name, a time before you took breath from innocent lips and watched in stillness as their blood crashed against the rocks.
