Uncanny Night

Night peels off as the tumult’s incisiveness digs deeper into its skin

The day was obsessed enough with mundane conflicts conspired by life

Defeated, it cannot rest for a while before encroaching into the night

Night’s folds of distress hide the bright stars today as peculiar silence befalls

Whereon, the eyes can only comprehend the gloominess of its soul

Whatever happened to the profoundness of the night, today it looks defeated

Probably a longer wait will pull this life to the edges of another real night
