Drumbeat

drumming-circle

~~~ 

~~~ 

Rhythmic drumbeat grows louder

As I awaken with a start

Awareness gradually trickling in

Drumming is coming from my heart

 ~~~ 

 Memories flooding back

Tender moments caught in time

Drumbeats and heartbeats mingling

Intensifying into sublime

 ~~~ 

 It’s all gone now

Except this one solitary beat

Pounding relentlessly inside my chest

As I lay under the silky sheet

 ~~~ 

I imagine a world without you

Then suddenly realize I’m in it

No more love, no more laughter or joy

Just an emptiness that sees no limit

~~~  

Again the drumbeat reminds me

To rise up and get on with my day

For ultimately it will be silenced

When I quietly turn stony gray
