    Now comes the night
    and I could write about
    how the sun’s elastic snapped
    or highlight how the honey horizon
    heralds the ensuing darkness

    I could word-weave a typed tapestry
    carefully crafted in your name
    or chase a rhythmic route, meter
    in keeping with the beat
    of your heart

    But this night, like last I’ll
    stop the clocks, drown the candle’s
    flame, sleep tonight into
    tomorrow, where everything
    will remain the same.

    If my mental paintings would not be in grey, your poem would turn them into pop-art. Loved it....

    thanks for the kind words, everyone.
