Poetry Reading – “Some Sunset Somewhere”

This poem was written in a very dark part of my life, and during a particularly dark period within that. I am grateful, though, to look back and see that even that, I was able to see the light shining through and remind myself that there is always an end to the storm.


“Some Sunset Somewhere” – Recorded 12/18/2020 – Auroraboros – Objects, and the Distance Between Them

The original piece is below for reference, and can be found in its entirety at https://objectsanddistance.com/2018/12/19/some-sunset-somewhere/


My body aches
And the sound of voices from so long ago echoes in my ears
Smiles no longer bearing faces
Faces no longer bearing smiles

At times
I want to crumble
To fall back to the earth and in time be swept away by a passing breeze
Each and every cell and molecule dispersed from one another
To be lifted into the sky that they might at least be a part of some sunset somewhere

But I know
That this will pass
With time
Just as each day ends
With a sunset
Somewhere

    1. Yes, it is really quite beautiful and pure at the core. I actually had someone ask me what I thought of death, and whether I was afraid, and this poem came to mind and the concept leaves me not afraid, but rather intrigued. I am in no rush to move from this life to the next, but when it happens, I am certain it will be nothing like we expect. 😊
