This fear

You smile when dreams chirp but 
laughter evades me
I stagger when they evoke memories,
as mine endure a frequent misstep
We send them cues to light up
our lives
But sometimes only darkness remains…
A silent inversion of light

When hope delivers pairs
of cheery hearts
The wordless one ignites the other
It works it up into clouds of emotion 
and starry wishes
But soon wilts under the weight of 
a too common dusk,
To twist the senses anew

The chirps ring in our ears 
as words of pride 
Driving falling boulders in sight
of anchors defeated 
Their weight is soft
but insightful
Their tunes degrade
an already deadened soul

No fear repeats
when I can hear them
But deafness does not regard a melody 
as charm
I see but I cannot hear…
Inside, the rule awakens this fear
I stack the souls I’ve seen to render 
me whole
As if I chose what came before
I sink in dreams unlike the ones 
you know
Call them in, 
so I won’t fall

But I fear
you will not call
