Silent Obscurity. A Poem by Adam Levon Brown


I feel like I’m fading; into silent obscurity.
Shadows play tricks on the wall.
I look up to the sky
for answers to my life.
Am I even here anymore?
Or have I faded to beyond the reaches
of a human hand’s grasp?
All memory escapes me –
As I look to collect myself
on the canvass that is my life
I must be painted somewhere in the grand scheme,
I am thinking to myself.
Why can’t I find myself?
I seem to be faded away;
like a dried leaf that blows in the autumn winds.
I will work with what is left of me
and try to love you
the way I’ve loved in the past;
Just know that I’m not the same person I once was.
Passion has left me
and I seem to be fading into-
Silent Obscurity.
