Double Down

Batten down the hatches bit tighter than before… all posts under “Crackers & Jacks” are now private instead of password protected. Doesn’t matter anyway.

I’m going down now. Sleep will free me.

My dreams take me where I cannot go, down dusty paths of memories, to places I no longer know, in bittersweet song harmonies.

Hey…

A lifetime of sadness pooled in blue eyes, a well of regrets into sorrow lies, summed into one little word. Hey, heard only in dreams.

Hey, your silence screams.

Await the sun, awake the son, open eyes can see, pride and fear in old man’s hands, time’s grains of sands washed by endless seas.
