All Rise

I say the tragedy is how you’re gonna spend the rest of your nights with the light on
So shine the light on all of your friends…
– Jason Mraz



This sky’s
got a million ways of cracking
just wide open, holding
out its beating,
thunderous heart.

I didn’t ask you enough questions
before you left, and now
I’m scared
of all these things
I’ll never know.

The rain’s got a patter
of truth to her, but the wind, well
………she lies
………in wait
for those of us
with sympathetic ears.

Is there magic
in the knowing? Or are we
merely kidding ourselves
and calling it good?

All these years,
I simply thought the earth
a comedy
of errors,
a gathering of fools.

And me,
…………(ay, me!)
still full of songs
and silence.



Prompted by Poetic Asides
