Chasing Twilight

Nicole with a poem – qualities of light

The Lithium Chronicles

We went to bed
in the cruelest
places,
hoping to wake
to beautiful
things.
And I suppose
the way
twilight crept
through gauzy drapes
and cracked glass
to lay its cool
glow
over sleepy eyes, held
a particular beauty.
For when
dawn called
through torn drapes
and shattered glass
to lay its tired
glow
over wounded eyes,
we yearned
to chase twilight
into the cruelest
places, again.
