Man Can Never Be Alone... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

man can never
be alone
even if he chooses
to be
in his own
selfishness

against the light
he shall cast his
shadow

in the middle of
darkness
deep in the night
of his solitude
he will always
hear his
own voice

no ear can be
deaf
no self can ever
vanish

the voice within
never ceases to
converse with who
is there
who wants to dissolve
in the vastness
of the universe

why do you hear
the rain?
why do you smell
the notes of
an old song?

tell me if the
voice mutes itself
tell me

you may lie to
your shadow
you cannot lie
to that voice.
