Cheers to silence by Nick Foreman
how do you record dialogue
hear the joy pain & sorrow in a voice
understand emotion and language of the world
when you hate people?
when the only voice you hear is yours
reminding you your still alive.
when a disaster happens
all i can think of
is how long it will take
for people to stop talking about it.
save me printed word
give company to me & my scotch
in this dark silent room
are you my friend?
i read your pages that wreak
& i want another taste
While the world is put behind my bedroom door
my saviour is brought by the drunks & lonely men
may we meet & share a drink & talk
Or maybe not
I'm 26, studying with hopes of being a social worker. Started writing poetry first year out of high school after discovery "the doors". I'm influenced by the beats. I believe poetry helps analyse and clarify my everyday self inventory and existence. Nick Foreman.
