Random Poem:

My voice
unknown

I have never met you
 1
but you travel
 2
with the sound of bells hanging on a pagoda
 3
ornament in a distant
 4
japanese garden
 5
 
 
You're as fast as the percussion
 6
of bulletshells ignited
 7
in a flintlock
 8
 
 
I never miss you
 9
and yet your music is a part of me
 10
 
 
I especially hear you in my friends
 11
They tell me
 12
what you have said
 13
 
 
I wish I could sit you on my lap
 14
like a Greek woman
 15
playing a harp
 16
and enjoy playing you
 17
running my fingers over your strings
 18
making a web of beautiful music
 19
 
 
by now I don't remember
 20
what isn't you
 21
I've heard you in all my dreams
 22
but they were never yours
 23
