Day 28 - I Hope I Won't Be Late

A post-apocalyptic surprise coming soon! getting this posted. Listening to the Caps game tonight—priorities, you know.

My Dark Friend

The night has a personality,
Character, if you will,
Unique, and alive to those unafraid to listen.

It has a voice,
A distant voice,
That speaks to me in whispers.

Even on a busy street,
Surrounded by crowds and the lights,
I hear it calling from over my shoulder

Bringing comfort,
A protective shroud of darkness,
That puts my mind at ease.

But we are friends,
The night and I,
And most will never understand.

They can neither speak its language,
Nor see its subtle gestures,
Or even sense its presence.

But I can.

BTW - The Caps won.
