This night



The sun dims
blackens the blue skies
pedestrians freeze
automobiles fail
the wind stills
halts the purple hibiscus
transmissions seize
heartbeats pause
darkness creeps in
life blurs away
we listen
for the absent sounds
of the city bustles.
All gone. gone. gone
Yes let them go
and let us be
for life is a mirage
but we are reality
I see it through the candle flames
this night.
