Month: July 2016

Night encroaches

Bright sunlight

fills my eyes

but all thinking

is of the night. 

Impending night, 

like an aching need,

a ripening promise. 

The sun has set

and yet

it is still morning. 

My mind is on amber skies

and hazy sun-sets

while the day

burns onward.

I await the night

like a jilted lover:

no longer feeling

wanted

but wanting

nevertheless.

Music drifts across and informs

So…

what is it

we are chasing

anyway? 

I know what I like, 

what I love…

and here I am

wondering

what to do….

Shouldn’t I know? 

Why am I asking you? 

Rhythm, 

meter,

time signatures…

all

already

worked out

long before

I first drew a breath. 

Here I am,

Like a fool,

grasping at the fringe;

still asking the darkness

to show me herself,

and explain to me

what to do. 

Man…

I am lost.
