Alone in the night

Alone in the night
I hide from
the looming light .
That seeps
into the center
of every
single soul that
has ever
grasped upon the
idea. Which forever
dances towards
the topic
titled death .

I like the poem. It expresses the fear of death which is inexplicable for all men. He comes and goes away with souls of the beloved.

"Words are currency of ideas and have the power to change world. Ride your pen on the rough road."

An excellent job on a difficult subject. I wrote this one a while ago, you may get some enjoyment from it. " Death is a Gentleman". ~ Geez.

It seems that the days and hours that people
are available for chatroom are staggered and
not a good match for most everyone. How about
if everyone just shows up at the door, whenever
they have a few free minutes?

I got the idea while watching a documentary on Ernest Hemingway .
Seeing as he isolated himself when writing .

Hlm life without literature is a life without logic.
