Favorite Quote:
Don't cry because it's over
smile because it happened :)

The day creeps over into night
Slowly, too slow to capture with sight
The moon shines a reflection onto the street
That guides me through the thickest shade.
From here on out, it is my only light.

As day has now come and gone away
And I myself walk further astray
The suspense of night, I have yet to meet
I am touched by darkness as I begin to fade
As I walk, night erases my memory of day.

I have now been swallowed by the dark
Night has surely left it's mark.
It's covered the town in a woolen sheet
That has blinded me with no help or aid.
Until day returns, a brighter journey to embark,
I shall walk on, through the eminent dark.

The author's comments:
A walk through the dark ... from my perspective. This poem paints a mental image of how night slowly and GRADUALLY comes upon the world.

Well done! I wish I could write a comment as eloquently as you can write a poem.
