"You ever notice how the drizzle in the night looks looks the fuzz in the TV screen?"

There is a light that never shines,

It never goes out.

I’ve never spoken of it before,

I’ve never seen it before.

Where the river bleeds into the sky,

I saw you, nothing new, but what shook

The ground:

You saw me.

Nothing shone, our reparations

Were made in the dark,

Behind my eyelids.

Close the music box,

All I want,

No more ringing,

No more singing.

I keep to silence,

So I cannot hear you.

I miss those notes,

That dance upon the stage.

Are you hung upon bad blood,

And hostlities of youth?

Tell me, we’ve grown,

All has been put aside.

The author's comments:

This is a poem of healing, growth, and maturity. It is a poem about growing past old wounds and mistakes made in the flurry of immaturity. It is also a beseechment for a hearing.
