(PAD #043) completely

I have
spoken
for days unending

tales
of derring
and yester-ways

aloud
bravado
with thrust
and riposte

adventure always
but one sail
away

yet here I am
in silence
lonely

the evening drawing
a curtain
closed

with the murmured voices
of
what once was
or
might be

and once was
quite surely

and once . . .

once . . .

is gone

now
it is the nights
unending

with their voices
silent but insistent
yes

speaking at me

forcing me
to listen

making me hear

the days
are fleeting

and the music
slow leaving

the emptiness
is nothing

nothing

but it fills
the dark
completely
