Hearing’s Horizon

Where the voices
of your head
Meet the singing
of the wind.
Where your ears
against the bed
Are listening to
something within.

Or is it without?

I have my doubts.

Is that sound
Right there
Real?
I’m not scared, for
I’ve heard before
Where hearing’s horizon is
Tightly
Sealed.

I’ve heard this then
in the wilderness
A sort of singing in
the night’s still wind.
I thought it might be
something
almost too distant to hear.

Not something to fear,
Though I felt fear then.

How loud things seem
When you’re listening
The rain, your breath,
Your heart beating.

How quiet the world
has become
When sleep keeps
my eyes open.
Quiet enough to
hear the drums
At the edge of
hearing’s horizon.

  1. Falling Darkness
    Coming Silence
    Why does your embrace seem
    So Cold
    When before it was
    So Warm

    Falling Darkness
    Coming Silence
    Why does your embrace bring
    This Fear
    When before it brought
    This Pleasure

    When did it become that
    I couldn’t face your Gifts

    When did it become that
    I turned away your Teachings

    I’ve built this
    Prison of Noise
    Note by Note
    Now I can’t get out

    Falling Darkness
    Coming Silence
    Will you shatter my Prison
    And return me to your embrace
