' ' ' ' End Of Story(For Byran) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

The words
hunted him

hunted him
down.

When they had captured
his imagination

they
tamed him.

Told him
their dreams

which they called
'Stories.'

Begged him
to write them.

When he told them
he would

they let him
go again

(miles from nowhere)
(miles from where he'd been)
(miles from who he'd been) .

He treked endlessly
across a vast desert

of blank() pages
page after page.

When they found him
he was dead

but he had somehow managed
to write on stone

the story that
this poem

unfolded.

Put your ears
away now.

There's no more
to hear.

This...is
the End.
