Into The Night

The stifling summer, oppressive at

Night.

Windows raised, to displace the

Heat.

A fan blows, it helps me to

Sleep.

§

But an open window, let’s loneliness

In.

A horn from a train moans into the

Night.

The saddest of voices, a haunting

Sound Bite.

§

A dog, chained, howls at the

Dark.

The wind, probing, clawing the

Screen.

Crickets and tree frogs, mourn for my

Dreams.

§

Light probes the window, cars passing

By.

The pounding bass, from a pimped out

Ride.

Tinted windows, who’s there

Inside?

§

Such loneliness, trapped in my

Youth.

Is it melancholy, or am I just

Sad?

I don’t know, both feel so

Bad.

§

Empty and lonely, these haunt my

Heart.

Time passed, so many long

Years.

I hear that horn and in rush the

Fears.
