"um?"-me ;9

black ripples in the endless flow

screaming symphony of wordless water

moonlight gleaming on crests 

moonlights shadows dancing on troughs

running eternally screaming forever

running from what?

screaming for what?

trying to snatch you

trying to drag you into its choking black depths

trying to steal your screams for its own

trying to take your life to hasten its run

trying to lure you into the calm cacophony

trying to lie to you with its glow

trying to tear away the quiet island 

trying to end the shores that give you sanctuary

trying to be beautiful and quiet while trying to wail in deadly agony

river of lies to trap you away

the Midnight River

If I only could, I surely would.
I'd rather feel the earth beneath my feet."
