Voices in the Dark

Voices in the dark,
you know the ones,
they have you tossing and turning
searching for that perfect spot on the pillow
while you lie awake late at night.
Voices, voices…. voices in the dark.

They speak to you in the language
of the Woulda-Coulda-Shoulda,
they invade your dreams,
challenge your inner-self,
plague you with demons of
self-doubt and uncertainty.
Voices, voices….. voices in the dark.

They remind you of lovers
gone but not forgotten,
triumphs and failures,
weaknesses and strengths.
Things you know you should have remembered,
of things you know you should have left alone.
Voices, voices…… voices in the dark.

They speak to you
with the wisdom of hindsight
and condemn you with the clarity of
yesterday’s news.  They remind you
of how blessed you’ve been and curse
you for the things you did not do.

Voices, voices …..voices in the dark.

A child of the 60's I often feel out of place in the world as it exist today. Too much excess, too much materialism, too few people who genuinely care or give a damn. It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye. Antoine de Saint-Exupery

  8. Wow.  So true.  Sometimes I lay awake at night & just can’t shut down that internal diaglog…the "woulda-coulda-shoulda" just doesn’t stop…it just moves on to laying strategies for tomorrow and I am robbed of the moment.
    Happy Holidays,
