For you
There is only one direction
To go -North

The dim yellow lamp
Glows faintly
Over the thick carpet
A soft fire burns into embers
Sitting on a sofa
With a glass of white wine
You ask, why?

She cannot respond
In the dark of recesses
Of private libraries
Hidden in the cracked leather binding
Of unread manuscripts
There might be an answer
Or there might not
