Tonight

Dogs howl,
and the night is nearly done,
for miles and miles the dark blue sky spreads its wings over us,
and dreams set in,
of subconscious battles half won.

I dwell on memories.
They burn me inside out,
I’m hollow,
lovelorn,
forgotten and dreary,
but I must go to sleep,
before today sprouts.

I wish I could play ‘silence’ on my headphones,
for the voices in my head,
are loud.
They make noise and walk around the bed,
they don’t drown,
eager, aware and profound,
I fall in a stupor,
and dogs still howl,
nightmares still abound.
