Eulie’s Song is a story of Love, and the Longings of the Heart. — Kathy Lauren Miller

The Beautiful Words

The beautiful words,

That ring so true,

Bring me but dark memories,

From a time and a place,

Best forgotten.

Filled with anguish and loss,

Not now, I pray,

but then it crawled

Into being, by what force,

They say, nonsense, but it lives,

Somewhere, now,

To come again,

To crush, destroy, all the goodness

The world has ever known.

The pinnacle has arrived.

Once again, we face, the face,

Of evil incarnate, we see it,

Daily,

but never acknowledge,

What we see.

We feign ignorance,

Deny what we see,

Yet it creeps to our door,

Seeps under the floor

The poison of its words,

It lies so beautifully.
