There Was...Life

Location

There were lies

and pain

misguded thoughts 

that floated down the empty alleyway

There was hate

and emptiness

then the sudden breaking of a heart 

never to be mended 

There was hope 

of some sort

peace...one would hope

and then love that came swiftly and 

silenty like a dream comes at night

There were dreams too

and fantasies

never to live up to the expectations 

of reality

There was life

and living

and if only in a swift moment

death

Then there were whispers 

and shadows 

then light 

glorious light from out of nowhere

There was nothing before there was...

so the story goes to say.
