Before Retiring

Eyes want to rake in the wintry feel before retiring 

Before sleep changes the course of flow through reeling darkness

Declining the entry after the windows and doors are shut

The advances of declining perspectives stop at the stairs

Faint knocks of phantom times that emerge from condensing melancholy

Through endless highways, they rush towards a colossal attraction

All the fashionable words would quieten as they fail to translate

Alien feelings, surrounding the unfriendly obscure environment

Reminisces about collected thoughts alter the journey of sleep
