silence (rescue me)

from by Peter Hamm



©2016 Peter J. Hamm

The end of the trail looms like Notre Dame
Over the strong and the frail, and both I see I am
The end of the road in the way like the heat
Touches the load, rises up from the street.

Here in the night, brighter than sun
The moon mocks my sight and strength all as one
The innocence that lies to the stars
The silence of age, can’t run very far

My eyes have been blocked up
Like trapped abandoned children
In the blood of dirt and clay
The earth gives up her plight
And calls to the sea
Come down here and rescue me
Come down and rescue me

The intimate hold I have on love and hate
The loss of the soul, this hunger we create
Oh, the dead are all here, to finally ask
“Who was the first? Who is the last?

My eyes like the mountains
see the hilltops but the valley
Must wait till all is free
From night that tears the smiles
From the heartless
Come down here and rescue me
Come down and rescue me
