Night

Night
Do we love?
Have we ever truly loved?
Is it not enough that we must die
without these lies
this tongue tied silence
tear stained ignorance,
night
broken by tears
broken by dreams.

Why are we here?
Why are we really here?

    A touching read, lines open enough so that we, the reader can fill in our own blanks.
    It is good to read you again Si.
