SUNSET DEATH
(4/18/15)


the skies
darken

we feel that
profound
sense of loss
with the diminishing
rays
of daylight

from where
does such
a soulful sensation
emanate?

from when?

some
may think
that it sources
from our childhood

playtime's
over

the specters
of school
chores
or church
just around
midnight's corner

but such
depression
must be
older

prehistoric

perhaps
from the first
children

the first
humans
suffering
the meaning
of their daily
existence

the dusk
still brings
tears

fortunately
they are hidden
by the coming
darkness
