DARK DARK WORLD (for Aisling Murphy)

Aisling

 

It’s a dark dark world

When will we scream “Enough”

The snuffing out the light

The ripping out of love

In strange days of isolation

Missing loved ones last breath

Evil throws us another punch

In her meaningless death

 

It’s a dark dark world

Too often it seems to be her

Wolf whistles, cat calls

Ending up in murder

Peeling her eyes up ahead

Fear of who is behind her

She was always vulnerable

Just because of her gender

 

It’s a dark dark world

The sun is going to rise

From a small glimmer caught

To finally blind our eyes

And I pray that just a ray

Will seep in underneath

To flicker in their night

A gleam of comfort on their grief.
