Dark in the City

It is dark in the city where the shadows full prowl,
It is dark as the black wings of night,
It is dark in my heart where the threads are full torn,
But I know where you are, it is bright…


This poem is found in my short The Threads of Sorrow.  The verse was inspired by an AMV I found featuring “The Beginning is the End Is the Beginning” by Smashing Pumpkins.  Alas, the AMV has been removed from YouTube, but the memory and the haunting lyric “Is it bright where you are?” remain.
