Time and Muse

They said that I was, ‘quite insane‘
searching for you in forest’s dark.
With moon half full and pouring rain
I left seeking your flowing heart.

I sought you towards light of dawn 
following paths of broken growth.
I thought I heard our concealing song
When your form I saw, and did approach.

Morning it seems is just ahead
as I lay, staring, unable to move.
My inks, but senseless drops in pools of red
this night of loss, both time and muse.

    "My inks, but senseless drops in pools of red"...that line is so very meaningful to me...what truths you speak to my soul, Michael...such a loss...so hard to bear.
