window light


My unknown friend
Kept her light on all night.

Unable to sleep,
I pace up and down
The long hall,
Watching the street
Through the window,
Feeling she is watching
With me.

Now she is gone,
Her room dark.
And I could not even salute
Her passing.

For we are a people
Set about by demons,
Busily securing
A place for us
In this terrible history
Of the world.

I miss my friend.

  2. Chapter nine. Had hoped for more but it’s been pushed to one side lately with other
    events. Thank you for asking!
