The Refrain


The Refrain

Voices, voices, waves of whispers,
Murmurs bellow, spell disdain
Command focus, ask for replies
Demand attention in refrains

Salty tears beg for placation,
Silver coppery laughs ring loud
Adamantine edges glimmer
Lurk in sardonic hints, proud

Avalanche like multitudes of
Sounds and words and threats and calls
Pound and hurt and thread and tangle
Tide and crest and ebb and fall

I’ve lived hours and days through this
To know without a shadow of doubt
It’s possible to be achingly lonely
In the midst of a screaming crowd

Day Seventeen!

Hope y’all like it! 🙂
