Into the Night

Into the Night

The last ember of red and grey twilight has dissolved
into nothingness, and the ebony night emerges from
the hidden shadows to begin its rule of the underside of day,
as the misty moon begins to rise into the black evening sky,
with its pale reflected light, perched among the flickering,
pin-point stars, which pop out, one-by-one in the raven dome.

The secret lovers slowly emerge from their hiding places,
energized by the chill darkness, and the muted evening lights,
feeling vindicated for their unearthly patience through
the seemingly endless hours of harsh daylight, with its
intolerable noise, its insufferable human contact, and
its unreasonable demands of dull, meaningless redundancy.

They embrace with a tight, liberating, passionate fury,
and the world goes away, with all its loud, bright, thick,
intolerable memories of the agonizing hours of daytime,
as the secret lovers clasp lips in a kiss that obliterates
the long wait in one thumping heartbeat, and transforms
the hours into a divine, eternal moment called "Now".

The obscene yellow sun returns from its nightly slumber,
and destroys the evening reign of the dark nighttime,
as the secret lovers each rise from their solitary beds,
already anticipating the next encounter with their
fantasy soul-mates, when once more their dreams will
launch them into the night, and into their lovers' waiting arms.
