*The Eternal Band*

To wait is a fear.
Voices in the corridor
knocking, breathing. Drear.

Sounds in the darkness
entering the door of soul.
Unease and distress.

I dug my way out
from the hole there light shined through.
Nothing more to doubt.

I reached for a hand
in a wish to miss the fall
The eternal band.
