The Hour of Deepest Shadows


The Hour of Deepest Shadows

In the hour

Of deepest shadows

Memories

Echo from afar

For minutes

In my imagination

I am standing

Close to you

In this inward mirror

Rushing

Through the night

The passages

That I regret

Sound softly

Like a murmur

Or the ceaseless motion

Of the sea

And underlying

These shifting sands

The aching voids

Are barely seen

With

Every

Passing

Second

I am melting

Melting

Away

Like a clear

Running

Stream
