acoustic abyss


By jamesaguiar - Posted on 16 November 2010

For months I have lived in the depths
mostly alone, bereft.
music has no place here,
becoming random noise an acoustic veneer.
As a starved person forgets the taste of food,
my mood cannot hear,  only listen.
Yet instantly unaware, reminiscent,
A sonata, a song, a random melody
penetrates to the core of my body,
making me ring with pain and joy,
releasing the boy
from the tired old man.
There is no plan
to prepare for this
such pain-pleasure in my world is amiss.
Finally, it instructs me
in what may never more be.
the raven speaks in pleasant tones
which in retrospect  is a caw, a moan.
