Poem :: There will come a day



There will come a day,
When the newness of this phase will fade away,
And, the darkness that festers within,
Will crush me over and find its way -
There will come a day.

There will come a day,
When the emptiness will engulf again,
The only constant my life has known,
It yearns to be out this chain -
There will come a day.

There will come a day,
When a safe green field will wither away,
The sky will go dark, and
The strength of the earth will stray -
There will come a day.

And, when the colours lose light,
I'll wish for the rage,
To tear me open, consume me,
Drown me in your depths, I'll plead -
There will come a day.

When the shadow will emerge a victor,
And its foundations are stronger,
It pulls me under with a force to wonder;
It's a homecoming; a cold welcome -
There will come a day.

And on this day, when it all happens again,
The interminable cycle of doom and despair,
I know I'll be lost in a tumultuous haze;
There's no escaping my demons' lair -
There will come a day...

-Asra
