Night The Second - Poem by Peter Russell

Why do you ask me
If I am alone?
I cannot speak
To anyone at all.
Strangers are like blank walls,
Faces I know barred gates;
And every sound
the click of a lock…
Nobody waits.

Poet's Notes about The Poem


Every night for nine nights Manuela appeared to me in a dream, and each night she spoke a poem to me. I had never seen her before and I have no idea who she was. - P.R.
