Evening Turns To Night (poem)

My tears are turning evening into night

Was this the whiff of darkness that I chose

The windows of my promises all close

As silence adds a sharpness to my blight


Each second now an endlessness impose

As memories consume the hope of light

While routes to nowhere vicious blame incite

And in each heartbeat pain and anguish flows


Within these wall the bitter storm repeats

As sorrow all of what was real confound

And madness that will end all this now stirs


Sweat kindness brings back sound within the streets

As people laugh their footsteps on the ground

Yet only footsteps that I want is her’s

The want can be high but if it is not there then don't look no more great poetry.

Good poem with an interesting theme, Martin. We often hanker after things we think we need but cannot have - which is probably the best thing for us.
