As the Shadows Deepen by Richard Schnap

There are seven billion souls
You can learn to call your own
But there’s only really one
That you can know

And there are seven billion songs
You can hear upon the wind
But there’s only really one
That you can name

It has seven billion words
And the language that they’re in
Is the only one that
Ever stays the same

And the only time
That you won’t ask why
Is when I say I love you
As we ride into the night

Richard Schnap is a poet, songwriter and collagist living in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His poems have most recently appeared locally, nationally and overseas in a variety of print and online publications.
