lights dim

time passes

i am there

i am here

sometimes everywhere

nowhere, at times

afraid of another moment

and what it might show us

but only fleetingly

like simply the flicker of a candlight

it could burn all night

i remember

that is all...


your eyes

i know

i've seen them

many times

just those eyes

and that spirit

twin brothers


why? i ask sometimes.

i don't know.

only this (i know) times

something bigger;

dimming daily --

as we die

--coming close to the abyss.
