whispering night

Whispering night

A whispering night

Silences itself to life 

Until normality 

Having long been the rhythm of the sun

Sets and is but a whisper

And the cold trickles up the veins 

When the buttress of the fragile soul 

Breaks and drops it’s  child

And not the dark

But the dimming light is seen

With squinting

” let it live ” is cried

And the light does push so gallantly for life 

Till the final desperate flicker and the  end

Puts it to rest at last 

And sight excludes it 

And when the mind is pressed and the night is dark and the music is soft but deadly 

A child quickly falls and falls and falls

Asleep 

-Omar Abdelhamid
