The night grows as I do,
old and still.
Darkness as a dam,
blocks my windowsill.
Small breezes
trickle through.
To rustle and enhance,
the dance of light,
which reflects an image
off a silvery knife.
That ragged-edged knife,
in the shape of a spoon.
A disguise well made,
for one who's not used.
The turning and twisting,
of a branch
through the mist,
is like an unbroken heart--pierced... with one kiss.
Emotions would do better,
to follow nature's way.
To die before the evening,
relive in time for day!
