A bird does not sing because it has an answer, it sings because it has a song


Storm clouds were forming in the sky;
So dark and haunting,
Shooting out their arrows
and bellowing their shout,
Mourning for the light
that you could never live without.

Looking through the window to your soul,
I saw you drowning,
Drowning in your sorrow
And choking on your guilt,
And down your guilt warmed cheeks
your bitter tears were freely spilt.

Dreaming of him nailed upon the cross,
You fell before him,
Praying for forgiveness,
A way to set you free,
A chance to hold onto your faith
and what you once believed.

Falling in the darkness of the night,
The grief consumed you,
Stealing happy memories
and feeding off your pain,
Making sure your broken soul
Will never live again.


The author's comments:
Judas-a traitor, a disciple, a broken man? I wrote this poem as an insight into how i think Judas may have felt the day he betrayed possibly the only person who had accepted him, despite his character flaws and had refused to expose him, knowing it would lead to his death.
