no joyful music

if there are a thousand ways
to hold back time
one would be to journey
down some unknown railway line
and by the winking
of a cheap hotel sign
slip into the forests
of the night

let the night take you
where there is no need for time
or for anything at all
till comes a dripping dawn
devoid of chorus

no joyful music then
to mark the day –
not that it would be
wanted anyway

  1. Wow. em-effing-mazing. I can relate to this piece so well. And you really captured the moment and the emotions. I dunno. I just really like this poem and you worded it just right. The flow was flawless. And this is going into my favorites! :] 5/5.
