Late Night Listener (collab)

By Vintage Black and Secret Thoughts Within

I am your only 
late night listener, 
savoring your words spoken 
over and over, 
alone in the blackness.

Messages played on loop
in the radio host sound 
of your voice, 
I tune in to enjoy 
yet another twilight sample.

Your poetic mixtape
of descriptive drunken words
makes perfect sense
to my late-night soul,
so, I dial in every sunset.

Alas! That intoxicating oeuvre,
over and over
I play it
as I live in fear
that you’ll disappear and I’ll end up,
singing in silence.

After such a lust driven
radio overdose,
I keep listening to your lyrical musings,
they feel like luxurious textured notes
for the soul of this
your only late-night listener.


For VB my warrior sister, all I can say is… Thank you.

  2. So many awesome lines and phrases. That’s really cool: “late-night soul”. This is so cool. A throwback to the good ol’ radio days. I bet those were fun times for so many. And voices were everything then! Great work by both of you!
