Bookends - I


Bookends - I


I want to know you…

I want to know why
You keep yourself 
To yourself
So much of the time
What do you find 
In those solitary hours
Alone in the storm
Walking in the rain
I want to know
Why you are such 
Good friends with the dark
What do you seek there
And what do you find
Is it the nothingness
That calls you home
I want to know
If you sleep
If you ever find peace
When you shut your eyes at night
Is your mind filled
With the haunting past
Or the intangible future 
I want to know
Why certain music speaks to you
For I find it sings to me too
Does it become
Your voice 
When you yourself
Have no words to say

I want to know you…
