In memoriam

In memoriam

11 February 2012


Silence for a tombstone becomes her

As wane heartbeats struggle for sound

In muffled world that no beat can spur

While dark ink skulks and floats around

Words drop a drop come forth in patter

I watch them as they form, spellbound

From inky droplets shaping into matter

As their echo in my head does resound

Drop-a-drop oozing like forcible chatter

Hesitant, meek as they drop to be found

Yesterday a vein full that would splatter

Today a dried-up puddle on the ground

Drip-by-drip goes the painful murmur

Memory’s trail helps a ruthless hound

A tune to sing with dark voice in a slur

In memoriam a music box I unwound
