– nightfall –

Don’t shed tears no more,

under moonlit skies.

My heart’s apathetic,

under dusty stars.

Don’t pace floors no more,

pond’ring earlier lies.

In the hours’ rhetoric,

peace is still too far.


Eating too much again,

before bedtime,

no need to pretend –

grey makes my spine.


This is what happens when the

owls call… a

lonely laden canvas here when

night falls.

Comfortable shouldn’t feel this

deadly, slow bleed… in

Midwest mud… oh heaven

help me, Lord please.

D.J. Whisenant
