By John R. Greenwood

Background tick of a nightstand clock

barely heard in silence roar

Body-aches seem louder now

when given preference above the sound

Creaks and groans deep within the home

mimic stomach growls and snapping bones

I must decide if music comes

or does this silence

serve the same?

  1. Very interesting....I identify with this, as I am often up alone, very late at night, sometimes until early morning...I rather like staying up late, actually..time to think, write, and plan for tomorrow...
