Whispers from the Void

I have made my peace with void...

and so I write without regret or qualm...

If you would seek out nothingness...

perhaps it is just as well...

I introduce you to this place...

where I don't suggest you dwell.


Creaking imagined...

whispering of lips moving without word...

nothingness at play...

vapid, dark...

bleak in expression...

illusive loneliness...

comforting to the wound...

solace from the blood...

misery's tomb and playground in one...


holy or defiled...

it really matters not at all...

none to witness and tell the difference...


One runs to or gets lost here...

a hiding place with a cost...

seeking for revelation or expiation...

a place where shadows hide...


Go and seek the Cheshire cat...

run from life and light...

run from moon and sight...

go where none shall pass noticed...

all are blind to their fellows...

if they aren't asleep in the night.


Called by the siren of the disconsolate heart...

summoning where no plight is heard at all...

no one to hear it...

no one willing to speak.


Come fully armed...

come not at all...

a luxury to the strong...

swallows the weak and vapid whole...

enjoy it if you can...

remember soundless things...

are thirsty for your desire...

to put out all fire.


They crave those...

who can't run from self...

weak seeking the vacuum...

too weak to be specific in their desire...

it causes them to self destruct...

or seek it the end...

acts of will will do...


Now stop listen...

here is the time to affirm life...

there is naught to disrupt your thought...

naught to offer strife...

so stay in the void...

until you can stand no more...

then come back to the racket...

if you can...

If not you will hear.............
