(10th may 1974 / Fathepur India)

Voices


The sleepless nights they begin to bite
As I hear voices of my fathers plight
As he shouts and shrieks for his life
The voices in my head as I lie down in bed

The voices of the past
Come to me thick and fast
I hear them just the same
These voices of blame

My cup is full of voices
Of time gone by of past choices
The voice of my mother whispering to me
The voices that said just let things be

the voices of women in my life
the voices of my weeping ex wife
voices that pleaded me not go
voices that cried out for me
the voices that say just let things be

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
