Treasure Island

Iris Rain


Silence


It is empty
I hear
nothing

The sound we love
Your music
playing in the soft, fragrant night

I used to hear the sound
knowing you were
just there
right there

Across the distance
in the night
I hear
the sound of your heartstring
in the melody
weaving in and out of the cold balcony
I used to couch under
listening to you
our heartstrings

Where is the sound today?
The silence is oppressing
the air is too still

On the cold, stony balcony
the moonlight casting shadow
of our bygone melody

Silence, heartbreak, empty nights

The sound of your heartstring
the music in the night
so vivid in my memories
so silent in the air tonight

Silence
invading
the soft, still, silent, empty nights

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
