As day becomes night the world closes in around you.  There comes a point where you can hear things you can’t see, and in the darkness of night that can be unsettling.  Alone last night I watched the world settle around me, lights disappeared in the distance and the city around me faded into darkness.

Just breathe the night air in.

Feel how cool it is on your skin.

Listen to the way the wind sings.

Smell what the breeze brings.

Just watch the night air fade.

See the light drop into shade.

Notice the window lights disappear.

Feel the darkness as it draws ever near.

Just fear the night air silence.

Hear the sounds whisper in the distance.

Wait in hopes that the night comes alive.

Witness the light struggle to survive.

The night air carries on in darkness.

Here in the dark, there is only nothingness.
