I am Well Rider

I am Well Rider

I am well rider
Many buckets have I known
They press my feet into my toes
The windlass whirls
The rope rough in hand
Scratches at my cheek and nose

When down the rocky shaft I plunge
Echoes fill my head
As black cascades an icy numb
Bursting far below, the tiny sky recedes
The bubbles churn about
I hear them in my ears like drums

I am well rider
None can know my obsession
Many times Ive dropped within
To see and feel the cold fixation
To sink into the deep
Down dark, where life is in cessation

But that is where I find the faces
Long forgotten eyes of wonder
How they hold you
Want to tell you of their stories
They have left our world
Each denied their places

I am well rider
Now I must return
But here I found a solace
Here my own ache and pain does churn
Her face and hair has bound me
My empty lungs now burn

But only here do I see her
Her story sad and tragic
Taken by a lovers anger
Cast, she was in shame
Her only sin was loving,
A man who would not Father
