Winter Words in Soundless Ears
I write love letters that you will never read
I scrawl words you cannot feel…
Displaced and ancient;
I tear out my voice again
Spreading notes for endless hours
Making poetry that never flowers.
Carving hearts into husks;
Peeling back the oak from my wants
An echo away from memory,
Sinking into the sofa
Held dreams of not living…
Emptiness is a lie;
For music burns inside,
Missing home; stage & mic
Surrounded by all inside
Leering with watchful eye
We explode into a pantheon of rhythm
Controlling the flow
Of the ever-moving wind.
Blurred and hidden,
A star screams with this sentence;
Death by Music! Take No Prisoners!
Crashing gallows by ghastly pen
With winter words, in soundless ears.
