dead silence

I used to speak my words

To the winds at night,

But recently I’ve stopped–

I realize that I have been saying

Nothing,

And I had been saying

Nothing

For some time;

For what does the man who is lost

Have to say?

Perhaps my silence

Speaks

More than my empty words

Ever could.

New Years Eve

What is new years eve

But a time to reflect;

Spend it with people you love,

Spend it with people you know,

Spend it it alone,

Spend it in love,

Spend it happy,

Spend it sad,

I’ve done each one–

And it doesn’t really matter,

The only thing that matters

Is how much can change in a year,

And so you can too.
