    I....I..
    …trying to think up things to say
    Trying to hold on to the light
    Darkness falls
    all around me stillness sits’
    with age you pay a price

    Things go
    Slowly
    Crossword puzzles
    help to keep the mind afloat
    Books and plays
    And even jumping rope
    But
    Darkness sits

    Moments like these
    Only fingers punching out the keys
    Emotions
    somehow
    Detached
    The chaotic brain
    No more a myriad of thoughts
    One word at a time
    One thought sometimes rhyme
    in this
    Abyss…this blankness
    I search

    Before
    make every inch dark
    let the mind meditate
    Let all thoughts erase
    But now
    Wanting
    a flicker of light
    Wanting a brightness
    words , pictures
    wanting....

    Quiet

    Only the machine drones in my ear
    Alone
    Without a tear
    It seems without a care
    In this
    Dry
    Empty
    Space
    where
    Darkness grows

    Loved the pace of this piece. Age can effect one that way, but I guess it's just making room for wisdom. Great to read something new from you.
