So It Is

When no one is near
Only the black cat sleeps
On the table
Under the lamp
The only other living thing
Here besides me 
And the cockroach
Who hurries along a baseboard
Hoping for water
The weeds flower fast
Outside the door
Seeds as many times
Passing faster now
Feeling blue fade from skies
Once more
Mournful night quiet
Even the wind left
The words come like friends
They come alone
From deep within me
I am alone
Only the demons in my mind
Want to write stories
To tease my dreams
The gnats gather 
Under the light nearby
So it is
My box and I keep company
Watching shadows
Flicker on the wall
For hundreds of years
It is the same fire
It is the same script
I write today
From yesterday’s yesterday
