The promised land

further detail
  Further detail, John Lyons (oil on canvas)

The colour of my words

        set against a dark grid
behind which the light
        struggles to be seen

So many horizons
        a maze of directions
that twist and turn
        bound by the canvas

My heart has become
        a plaything in her hands
she speaks of paradise but
        denies me the promised land

John Lyons
