Nightfall: Sound and Fury

"December Dusk" - BGC, 01 December 2015
“December Dusk” – BGC, 01 December 2015

cusp of

dusk:

sunset giving

way to

night

as the

chill wind

blows

through this

city

winter’s song

playing in

my ears.

 

making my

way

to the

bus stop

weary in

body

troubled in

soul

dreading the

crush

fearing the

fray;

seeking my

bed

and comfort

and safety

from the

storm

and the

sea

of humanity

jostling

pushing

kicking

screaming

stressing

me out.

 

and night

falls over

the city

and all

fall silent

and i

fall asleep

dreaming of

better days

better things

better ways

to live.
