Hiding behind these awkward lines
he dreams of emptier lives
his day begins at death of a friend
The silence screeches through the mine’s dark ends
He has been here before
in his love of the dark he has explored.
Yesterday, was dark in and out
Today, is friendly in its dust and doubt
The dreams end, and so does the day
his ascent begins with home on its way
Out there, the world is a scheming malice
and suddenly the darkness deep down was a bliss!
