The life of Dark
Once there lived a boy
Who dreamt of oceans vast
and deserts hot and dry.
He traveled these places
in dreams and in nightmares

No desert sun on his face
No sea breeze to cool his brow
Just the sound
of Gram’s voice
Telling him another tale

scream and weep
Their stories haunt her in daylight and in dreams
Begging for her to reach the magic words:
