Trina's Song



This is a poem/song lyrics. It was inspired by the unsolved murder of a woman in my community, but also represents the lament of many victims of violence, who's blood, like Abel's, cries out from the ground for justice.


VERSES 1-3

Don't leave your song behind

Don't say I love you too late

It is dark between the stars

And I am

Bleeding in the rain


Don't make a plan with a wolf

Don't let him lie in wait

It is dark between his eyes

And I am

Bleeding in the rain


Don't swim out too far in a lake

Don't let him love you too late

It is wide between the shores

And I am

Bleeding in the rain


BRIDGE

Dreaming, dying just the same

The darkness lies in wait, nothing’s gonna change

Dying, dreaming, darkness, lying, hoping, in the rain

Leave, run far away

The darkness lies in wait, the darkness lies in wait

Leave, run far away, he’ll leave you bleeding in the rain

Leave, run far away

Dreaming, dying, just the same


VERSES 4 & 5

Don't stop what you want to say

Don't let the tears wash away

Time is long between our lives

And I am

Watching in the rain


Don't let my life be in vain

Find him and make him pay

It is dark among the stars

And I am

Watching in the rain
