Voices in Me

I sit in my chair

In the darkness

Being the light,

Sullen am I of the day past,

It’s only a memory now

As I don’t know if I can travel

To the cacophony

Of dreams only half fulfilled

While I smile inside

These are emotions that pass me by

As I close my eyes

While sitting near a window

Open to the world of ideas

And pedestrians,

Who never look inside?

To wonder my gaze within

As if re-tuned to old songs

Those that make me dance

With memories far away

Turning the sorrow of loneliness

Into a joyful melodic barrage

Of I am young again

Dreaming with memories

Not all so bad

Only truths

Which I can sing

While sitting alone

With what I believe is silence.
