Poetry: “Nighttime”

Something short and a little silly, I guess.



Shadows draining from the sky
Light that dwindles
Darkness falls
Roiling clouds that blot the stars
Ragged shroud that hides the moon

Bony branches claw the dark
Darkened shapes
You barely see
They are shadows on your wall
Cast there by some man made light

Night is filled with nightly sounds
Magnified by solitude
Yowling cats
Roaring cars
Men who stagger home from bars
