Poem of the Week (Sat)

Hi, this is Riika. I am here with the Poem of the Week, first I would like to apologize for the late post as I am a little busy on my side but I am sure this poem is worthy your waiting. I am honored to be able to present this poem by Randy Behavior entitled "Counseling of Self". This poem came with a very beautiful picture as well as a fantastic flow in it. 

When you call out into the night’s quiet air
And no one answers
Save the drone and tick of the freezer
Do you wonder who and what you’re listening for

There are no answers to be found in the stillness
Did you think the waked ones were hiding them
And that now tucked away covered by night
The answers would spill
From their pockets on bed posts
And cigar boxes tucked beneath their slumber space

And neither are there answers in the bottom of a wine glass
Whiskey bottle or in the depths of a well stocked cellar
The answers you seek are hiding in the plain
But not all together view of you

We can go together if you like
Forge into the frightening silence
Past the hum of the icebox, past your breath
Past your heartbeat
Dare you come deep inside with me

I warn you don’t
Unless its peace you seek

Reflection and thoughts make us move on even if there is silence and danger lurking ahead of us...
