Never Heard. Still Missing.

Never Heard. Still Missing.


   First it was lull; then _

   Came the storm, full-force; and _

   Everything were fallen; then _

   It was lull again; and_

   I had fallen; then_

   Rose once more; and _

   Wanted more; then _

   I remembered; and _

   It was a Number; then _

   Had been given; and _

   Never got the chance to call; then _

   Came second storm; and _

   I was denied; then _

   Fell again; and _

   This time I was pushed; then _

   Heard the voice; and _

   I was down! Then _

   On was the party; and _

   Was not invited; then _

   Didn't know was never wanted; and _

   Frankly, didn't give a damn; then _

   Rose again; and _

   Learned new lesson; then _

   Found the child in Me; and _

   Wished for a game; then _

   Was no game to play; and _

   Toys all torn! Then _

   Not even a numbers game; and _

   Had lost the Number; then _

   It was lull again!

   And _

   Glad didn't call;

   Then _

   Not heard the voice;

   And _

   Would memorise the Number;

   Then _

   Hard not to tempt a call.

   And _

   I should confess!

   Though never heard the voice!

   Yet _

   Miss it,

   Like Iíve lost my Nightingale!

   And _

   Every morning;

   See a different bird!

   Yet _

   None have voice!

   They donít sing;

   But _

   Would they,

   If I called?

   And _

   What if?

   Forgotten their voice!


   Will never hear; and _

   Will always miss; then _

   Will be lull again! And _

   As it should be; then _

   Maybe?! And _  Then _

Author's Notes:

Life is a cause and effect, some causes leave deep effects, and some not so deep! Even the deep ones eventually will fade away! Yet, will leave their mark behind.

Dean, this gripped me right from the start. This is really powerful; moving. I feel the hurt within you, at the time you must of felt.

This is one hell of a poem.  I can't pretend to understand its frantic narrative.  It is the tone that I understand -- and it is the fierce tempo that caught me -- off-guard.  Dean!  Whence this excursion into curséd night!  It is a revelation.  A change. It is a strange poem.  A strong poem.  A scary poem from another district.  It races.  And. Yet.  Perched within, a single nightingale...  A fascinating fast-paced fantasy, this...  A tale of terror? flight? escape? fight?  ...Is this not Life?  --David
