night blues

silently it creeps closer when everything else fades away ;

its steps inaudible to the ears but pulses—one, two,

one, two,

to the same rhythm it approaches ;

from fear it manifests its desire—ours—

to invite the stranger with open arms,

to be comfortable in what shouldn’t be and

allow it to fill our lungs,

spreading beneath the skin to where light does not penetrate,

and sparing no gaps and spaces between
