The Play

The night falls

a heavy, velvet curtain

descending all around us

yet the play continues

the stars come out to light our way

the moon a spotlight

    Sometimes I find it difficult to stay focused on longer poems or novels and I suppose it’s one of these days now, for these lines resonated more than a lenghty epos. I wrapped myself in heavy velvet curtain, indeed (though it’s noon right now). Plus, Congratulations on excellent choice of font colour :).

  2. I really love this one. 🙂
