Nocturne in c sharp.


I am the night.

The smudge of sky
that means you can soon
close your eyes and breathe
deep of stars. I’ve pinned

a moon just so
so that you’ll know
the world will still be
here when you wake,
still be turning and yearning
and quaking under all its
ocean skin. I’ve draped

a cloak across her
tired shoulders for a time,
so she can lull
-aby her weary way
…….into tomorrow.
