House of Shadows

And because
we shall not meet
tonight
A House of Silence
beckons me – its meal

A chariot
drives its wheels
round a bend
of Life

A Morning comes
sooner Night
And because
we shall not meet
again
A House of Mirrors
beckons to me
my loneliness

Tread carefully
– the glass my heart
cracks on tiptoe
and cold

You may break the glass
my heart
though you may not
fall through and hurt

And tonight
when I most want you
to be with me

A House of Fire
A House of Rain
A House of Satire
A House of Pain
A House of Screams
No House of Dreams

I shall be beckoned to
by
an old House
of
Shadows
