Night Voices....spoken word
« on: November 06, 2007, 01:45 PM »

Night Voices

Lying in this pool of discontent
As night voices resist
My need for space, for sleep,
For eternal respite from this damned assault.
Their whispery, ceaseless cacophony
Unnerves me, muffled deep.

I still hear.

Clocks that chime the hours,
Ticking ages spent, unclaimed.
Music in a distant hall.
Notes sound that shred the soul,
As beauty arm in arm with sorrow
Sways atop piano strains in candlelight.

The wind moaning
Through branches
Of oak and pear
That never fade to anything
But lesser shades of green
In this place of
Season-less years.

Only I fade.

And the waves,
An ever present draw
Urging me from my unrest,
This lethargy of soul
That stains my days
With unbidden apathy.

Velvet bondage
Sucks me in
To places only I can go.
A visitor
To all that lies within,
Through these hours
Of pensive clarity.

It’s just a night.

Another night.

And I an unwilling
witness to it all.

It is fantastic to see you again, Allura.  It is as good a treat to read and hear you too.

Of course, I loved your poem, as I always love your work.  I particularly liked your soft voice and soft musical accompaniment.  This piece was masterfully put together, and, I hope is only a tasting of more to come from you.
