A sequel to the requiem

Photos (c) Unsplash

Searching for an open door

only to find it empty

searching for a fleck of light

only to find flyspecks.

Longing for a place to call home

wandering feet that waywardly search

paces back and forth over the night

slipping on silverly threads of starlight.

How broodish an existence, how marred in tragedy

too sleepless to fight back, too bewitched by madness

only to be met by the longing want of friendless fear

and back again to the throatless chant of time.
