Floating free Through alleys dark, The night slips in Abrupt and stark. Steals away Within the soul, From sleep emerge To dreams control. Abstract lines In colors spill Across the night To dreams fulfill. Creatures form Upon the slate; Condensed, the night Illuminate. The visitors The known and not, Disturb the soul To stir the pot. Beneath the dark Where dreams are kept, Tears of laughter, Tears we’ve wept. Open baggage, Secrets stowed Disguised by day Unfettered flow. Nocturnal nymphs With light are gone; Unsettled souls Awake to dawn.
