For when I’ve nothing to say

Some nights

I just don’t feel 

like words 

can come

and solve

a thing.

Like when I’m

down to

utterance

of sound

without 

much a

direction.

These are

the nights

I love you

like a bell

loves those

who listen

to its toll,

but wishes it 

could do

more than

repeat 

itself.

Wishes it

could find

a way

to make

the nights

more lively.

Even as

the ones

it loves

follow their

schedules,

listening.

  1. Daniel, I love the honesty of this. The image of the bell wishing to do more than repeat itself is right-on. I totally relate!
