Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light


It was the destiny
of the dark souls
to be exiled
forever in
the murky
land of doom
 
Those blessed
with sunshine 
traveled to
the honey mine
on the other side
of the moon

Sarah is hosting the bar at dVerse Poets Pub tonight
and has declared it Games Night.  We are to use at least
three video games to work into our poetry.

I chose four games:

Honey Mine
Doom
Destiny
Dark Souls

Song Lyric Sunday – No

I must be psychic because I heard this old Bill Withers song earlier this week and thought I hope I get to use it for an upcoming Song Lyric Sunday. Well thanks to Jim Adams, our host again, I can! The theme is “NO” and there were plenty of songs to choose from. I love this one. It’s moody and heartfelt reflecting the agony of being apart from someone you love. Bill Withers wrote this song in 1971. I hope you enjoy it.

Lyrics
Ain't No Sunshine


Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
It's not warm when she's away
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And she's always gone too long
Anytime she goes away
 
Wonder this time where she's gone
Wonder if she's gone to stay
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
 
And I know, I know, I know, I know,
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know, I know, I know, I know
I know, I know,
Hey, I oughtta leave young thing alone
But ain't no sunshine when she's gone
 
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
Only darkness every day
Ain't no sunshine when she's gone
And this house just ain't no home
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
Anytime she goes away
 
Songwriters: Bill Withers
