Day 36 – Where do you go?

Day 36
12:26 am – 1:19 am

Where do you go?

Deep in to a chasm
long from the reaches
of locals and travelers
where it is dark,
damp and suspicious

Somewhere in the
placid midpoint of
borderless plains
where it is radiant,
undiscovered, calm

Far in to a vault
of blazing stones and
spiked showers
where it is immeasurable,
sweeping and breathless

To the ends,
i think,
to the
ends

I believe you
journey
somewhere, often,
likely every night

Sitting, solitary,
in community,
in plain sight
of audience

Listening for your
crafted score
to drown out attention
coming and going

I should not ask
but you might know
everyone notices
At least I do

I still wonder
where you go

To the ends,
i think,
to the
ends

It is somewhat
obvious my friend
you are a dark
knightly gentle man

Who offers nothing
less than warmth
to those in your path
nor anything more

Nothing more than the best
and worst of all you might
imagine
a forlorn hero of internal wars

And when you run off
deep in the expanse,
to the depths
of your caverns

to the ends of
extremity

to the ends of your
imagination

to the ends of land, sky,
earth

I do wonder
where you go

To the ends,
i think,
to the
ends
