Tunnel of Darkness

.
So now
I pass into
The tunnel of
Winter and Darkness
Cold and alone
Dragging despair
As weights
On shoulders
Have bowed
With weariness
And age
With fear
I walk
My eyes closed
The days and
Nights flickering
Red and black
Against
The sky
Lit by
Stars
I refuse
To see
Aurora
With wavering
Tears Electric
Sky washing
Blood
From
Eyelids
With eyes
Now opened
The night
Remains
Darkness
Moving
Forward
Through murk
Through dark
Seeing nothing
There is
No hope
Tomorrow and
Tomorrow and
Tomorrow
So very long
Too long
Who can
Bear so long
Stumbling
Through
The Tunnel
Of Darkness
Can this
Small ember
Live
Until the
Dormant awaken
And cold
Dreaming stones
Grow
Warm
With sunlight
