Twilight's Lingering

by Michael


Now in the twilight's lingering
The poet's world stands still
It's not quite day and isn't night
A void, confused to, fill

He trembles within jaded thoughts
Now knows hope, but a lie
That dreams are chased by foolish men
We're born that we may die

The ebony of idled heart
That light cannot pervade
As silver, salty droplets fall
On life's decisions made

Michael Auguste~

Those in between years can be quite difficult. But they always pass, with time. Often our spirits seem get younger as our body gets older. And that is a joy.
