Farewell my day



Farewell my Day
What ravishing sky
Brilliant orange
Of Sun's sad goodbye
Sinking in the sea
As day's page is turned over

Night's sharp tooth sinks in
No mirror of daytime
But dark creature that roams
Who brushes against me
Spooning like a cheap lover

Time slows, mind weighed down
Cementing the hours
'Til Sun vents his fury
Stops this dark torture
Lightening Night's dark cover

  1. I've never thought of night in those terms. And thanks for reminding me of a term I haven't heard for years - spooning!

  5. Nights can be a torture when one is alone. The Sun is no help when morning comes. How sad for singles!

  6. Days can be filled with color and light and night with darkness...hopefully sleep can bring rest..
