silent syllables roam astray in these lonely streets....
For @astralphoenix 's train poetry contest...

in those lonely streets

Silent syllables

Silent syllables roam astray

Silent syllables roam astray in these lonely streets,

muting the light that slips,

muting the light that slips, between the smudged petals,

my filtered dreams.

Here,

Here, the radio plays the same old tapes,

reciting the primed grief,

reciting the primed grief, patiently

and the cries unspools after each tear that dries,

and the cries unspools after each tear that dries, under the tenebrosity of my solitude.

In these streets,

In these streets, you'll hear a symphony,

of the screams,

of the screams, that moves serenely,

of the screams, that moves serenely, under my sleeves,

In this silence,

In this silence, one is prescribed to breathe

In this silence, one is prescribed to breathe the wind whistling threats,

that cloaked the truth,

that cloaked the truth, blinding me with its lace,

Lonely I am,

Lonely I am, escaping into these allies,

weaving a lacuna over my skin,

For one more day,

For one more day, I'll abscond into this space.

Lonely I am,

Lonely I am, in this crowded street

Lonely I am, in this crowded street.
