when the darkness died

Klaus J. Gerken

i sought in thunder
what the light denied
it wasn’t pretty
when the darkness died
i sought a desert
where the rivers ran
to a wider ocean
than mankind could span
i found no purpose
i was all confused
the devil shook me
it was all a rouse
no perfect ending
could be so abused
