From The Void

Poem By adam stevens

He laughed then into the void
Sound echoing back and all around
It seemed that he had found
A crack in a solid wall
Though he knew that again he would fall
It was still murky
To see anything through it all
But the fear was fading
He could remember the path
And was set to start
Beating strongly again was his heart
Glance up, see the sparkle
Even in a dimly lit place

Audition

Everyone knows their lines
They're bustling in the background
I'm trying to keep up
Just fake it a while

I Held My Tongue

I held my tongue
though I wanted to scream
frustration cut through me like a knife
I waited and I paced

To Look

Look up
he frowned, seeing nothing
I insist, she said
It's all there, just past the sky

Noble Failure

the wicked often win
and the noblest of us fail
their destiny to be ever frustrated
never to know comfort

Her

I wanted to take her by the hand
Tell her what she meant
But she was fading from sight
And what gave me the right

The Job

It's a thankless task we do,
Not a mission to perform
They pretend to respect it
But it's a comforting lie
