Echoes in the Night

In the background,
The song plays quietly
Barely above a whisper.

The chords strike
And hum in perfect
Harmony.
It thrums with desire
And hunger.

But there’s sadness
There, amongst the
Echoes in the night.
Echoes of what
We once were.

Because when I
Close my eyes and
Hear the music,
I hear your
Voice and
The beautiful
Way you spoke
My name.

I hear the past,
And the memories
That never fade.

The seasons that
Change,
But the melodies that
Stays the same.

As the song swells,
The emotion builds
Up inside me.
It reverberates
Throughout
Every inch of
My body.

The tears,
No longer controllable,
Spill down my
Cheeks,
Like the storm
Burying the land
In rain.

The pain is too great
And you are so far.
So I press replay
And I let the music play
Again.

I've always had a passion for writing. In this crazy world that we live in, I find my solace in made up words and make believe stories. Let's escape into the void and forget about it all just for a moment or two.
