MUSIC LIKE WAVES OF NIGHT…

Standard

By Tom H. Brooks 3

 

Strange

lounge music

rolling over me in

dark waves

of sound and rhythm

I sit alone

in the darkness

eyes glittering

illuminated

by a single candle flame.

I stare deeply into its

fiery blue heart

looking for a revelation

but I am only rewarded

by burning myself again.

Drums beat

the inside of my skull

and

haunting melodies

melt

down the walls

where spiders crawl

and

rats scamper

through the attic of my mind.

Words

come forth

from some

unexplored depth of night

and out the window

The City sparkles

far below,

all of it

reflected in my eyes…

I watch car headlights

winding their way

through the hills.

I listen to the quiet voices

that whisper in my ear alone

like a cool night wind

in the LA canyons

calling me to

more important realms of existence.

Oh, those nights alone

in the Hollywood Hills,

as if I was the only person in the world-

they stay with me forever…
