has it…

has it always been this silent?
even when
the rain shatters its layers
against the roof
in tormenting rhythm
like ancient drums
pulsating from legends
of past lives
haunting and telling

has it always been this dark?
even when
the sunlight shears its rays
through the trees
in cutting lines
like painted strokes
wisped from brushes
of past artists
daring and vibrant

has it always been this empty?
or has my mind
found something so deep,
so consequential,
that nothing
can disturb its intent
to allow me
to ever feel again?
