Rue the Night (Poem)

Posted by on Jul 9, 2014

Like sunset
Our lives
Disappear
Before our eyes

Fading
From vivid hues
Into
Subtle shades

We pass away
Breaths like days
One
Never strays
Nor evades
The reckoning
Of change

Out from darkness
We are born
Between duality
We live
Until
Darkness returns
And we are whole
Once again

Until sunrise
Of course

Rue the night

– Jason Brain 2014
