TWILIGHT

TWILIGHT

As the light from the sky fell, I turned to pull down the blinds only to find a white and grey stray cat, drinking the rain that collected in the gutter. It made me pause, it made me think of nothing at all, it moved its body right and left, vigilant but there was no one there. And I thought, why are you afraid? I turned quickly, I wanted to take a video but as I whisked around, it had gone, and I was reminded of the light falling from the sky. Twilight always makes me sad, the end to another day that comes too quickly, when you long for longer days, and longer sunshine. It’s alright as long as you look me in the eye and show me your golden smile I’ll be happy to be the girl whose dreams are woven in silk. You can’t take me away from my mind and frankly you don’t care, I know that. Some nights I get so lonely, I play my music and I never thought emotions could flow so freely, because there I am trapped in the future thinking about the past. I want to believe something lasts forever, I want something everlasting but so many of my dreams have died. Cold eyes make me believe I’m bruised by their gaze. If you held my hand before, I’d have never come to this place. You are afraid and so am I that time is running out and your hand is held by another.
