Intensities

Three books completed,
In your absence
The temperature fluctuating
All the while

& I cannot help but focus
my misguided attention
on silence
and the hazy speculation
of what consumes
(from time to time)
my thoughts.

Does what’s within me cause
those who hear my faint
siren-song melody
to scream
and vanish
instantaneously?

Can you sense the massive shadow behind me?
Or have I said too much?
Have I become too intense
when I should have kept
my mouth
shut?
