Otherworld Calling by Elsa Marie Edmond Heart laid bare, tattered and torn With no more fight inside; Dark cold soul lost and forlorn Drowning by the incoming tide. A soul alas from foreign lands Hidden from this plane; Pale skinned and frozen hands Fading as the life force drains. Deep inside and always there The longing to go home; Trapped in humanity full of despair Suffocated in this upper dome. In Middle Earth, the land below Only peace and love reside; Beings that roam emit a glow The spark of the soul inside. Long ago these beings did roam The land you call Your earth; Driven underground to now their home As humanity asserted self worth. A soul of old of the Underworld For that is where I belong; A mere stranger here since this life unfurled Same tune ... yet a different song. The Old Gods call my real name Time has come now to return; For Earth will never be the same Until humanity can listen and learn. And at that time and only then . Both worlds may coexist; I say not where, I say not when Just watch ... for a descending mist.
