When you think of night, do you see its time?

Radiated energy surrounding

to sustain and remain for you, gifting

another moment to perceive skylines.

When I think of stars closest me that shine

and their brilliant nature we gaze upon,

watching light unknown, if it’s too passed on.

But in dark fate waits a collapse divine.


I recall its bright, in its life beyond

when I think of us, out of vivid dream.

It’s faded over time, too slowly on.

that energy cannot be lost, though freed.

Not even a shadow remains when gone,

no thought beyond, it’d be hard to believe.
