the year of lyrics: a poetry project

my search for inner-peace, one poem at a time

Day 191 – Notice

Leave a comment

This is a
public service announcement
please read at your own
no, Listen at your own
no, Pay attention at your own
Will you hear this without me forcing you to
read my lips?
Do you hear that?
It’s nothing but
silence; yes I could give you this.
But tonight?
You’ve brought something a bit more
different.
And it settles in with you,
as you ready
yourself for another
sleepless slumber.
Let it sink into the
deepest pits of your soul,
and try stomaching that for a while,
while your thoughts lose control.
And as you’ve let these leaves go:
dry up and wilt,
do not think that it’s easy
to rid of all the guilt.
