Chase the Echoes Away

Served in the U.S. Army, attended and graduated from The University of Texas-Arlington with a bachelors in psychology and minor in sociology


When twilight comes and chases away the light,

The echoes of loves lost chime on through the night.

The cascade of whispers keep flooding my mind,

The reflections I see make me wish I was blind.

My mind is an empty amphitheater that awaits the next show,

To showcase the truth I wish I didn’t know.

My candle is low and no longer bright,

I will let the darkness embrace me and take away my sight.

If dawn comes and I live to love another day,

Maybe she will come and chase the echoes away,

      Very evocative poetry! If this was written from a personal perspective I hope a new love for you is on the horizon.
