Stephen’s Call

Nancy


Fear
In the air
In the earth
In the rock
Cold
At my back
Requiem
Wailing
On the silence

I sit
Where I stood
Reasoned
Pleading
She could not hear
So loud
Stephen’s call

Hers
The anger
Grief
Disappointment
In me

I failed her
I have
Though not
As she
Thinks

Mine
The warning
Truth
Misjudged

Deeper
She knows
But
Too deep
The knowing

This terror
The nightmare
How long
However long

Too far
Too late
It cannot be

I will
Protect her

I love her

    My mind's eye recalled Vincent's "visions" or his prophetic nightmare. And as I read, I heard the way Vincent pleaded with her to listen to him and the way she sounded so resolved on the matter. Vincent does love her. :) Thank you for continuing that love. They are lovely!

  2. Thank you! Now stop visiting here and get writing!!!! Nancy

    I'm writing! I'm writing! Thank you Nancy for the encouragement. =]I won't be forgetting it.

  4. The Tunnels are such a welcoming place! I envision Father's study, each of us in her own nook or corner, busy recording dreams! Should we stop for lunch? Nah. :)
