Mine shaft


Someone was calling,  maybe Mr Tourette’s

Still I listen,in sleep I fell

I couldn’t find that place of comfort

For the voices were too loud

A toss,one turn,one eye opens,then I woke

For every time I fell the voices got louder

No name, No face, voices asking questions

Yet I had no answers, for there weren’t

Just words upon words

All for the sake of their recognition

Yet I concluded in the final

For the earth who sustains

For the heart that cries

For the child who listens

Deep inside the poets mind

  1. Your words always thrill me, my darling Shel. Today’s busy here, but I wanted to stop by quickly and wish you the very best birthday! Harbor that child in your poetic soul — he’ll keep you young and carefree. I’ll visit again late tonight. All the very best. Yours, Rose ❤️💋🎂
