At Bay

Appeased, the powers held at bay.
Another day dared dawn on vast horizons.
The waxing and the waning had been stalled -
but not for very long at all, within eternity.

They forgot the lessons learned of history.
The rise and fall, like night and day,
were hidden deep within beliefs
of great prosperity. But only for the few.

Lost - the love they used to feel for others.
Evil tints and shadowed hints
were more than they dared see.
It had to do with life's infinity.

Blown off base, the case was waged
in barren courts of human power.
Moments into hours, as the battles
just raged on without respite.

Troubled minds, forgotten souls.
A touch, that feeling of the whole.
And then rise of wise began
to enter into realms of shattered minds.

The power of love could never be denied.
Caring wasn't only for the wise.
Love still drifted free upon
the breeze they all inhaled.

A spark that burned eternally
within each flare of air.
Their mortal powers never
really held at bay at all...
