Waiting outside the promised land
They say that it's open to all,
But it's the lie of leaves in fall,
And we have to wait so much longer,
Placed in line behind the stronger.

I never knew I could be so bone-weary,
My sight leaves me as my eyes grow teary
From hunching to endure this forlorn ache;
Just let us in, for god's sake!
We're all but dying out here,
We're dying, and you don't ever care.

Till night falls, so soon, to silence,
A somehow fitting end to this dance
Stained so by starlight, promised here,
To take us god only knows where.
Author's Notes:
As I say so often, I just write them; they have a life of their own.
