A Cry in the Night

written by: Any1mark



I've heard you cry out for years

Into my dreams, into my silence

Your voice trembles within my ear

My eyes search for a face

Shadows worn as cloaks hide it

I've heard you cry out for years

The voice has changed some

Your soprano tones more alto now

Your shape shifted in stature

I know your voice in my soul

I've heard you cry out for years

My sleep restless with each return

Tea leaves don't know what you tell

Your purpose seems a quagmire

But I now know you are me



Mark, a traveler with a working problem. I spend my time writing poetry, flash fiction, and taking pictures of the world. I have time because I'm waiting for the Ckeveland Browns to win a Super Bowl.
