It is a perfect night for death,
dark and silent save the rustling
of leaves in the mellow wind,
the moon, a waxing gibbous that
rose too soon, has set already.

The city too is dead asleep,
save a handful of sleepless souls,
either dead or carnivores
one way or another like me,
so death can prowl with liberty.

The darkness tonight is so absolute,
engulfing the visible world in a shroud
and the silence, so divine that the world and life
become unworthy of ever being missed or pined!

  3. The moment and time is the only space you occupy. Happiness is the path of choice. To be grateful everyday you lay your feet to the floor after you wake. To constantly be consume in darkness is to say that its only a path and not a choice. The lighter you are the better you are the better you will feel
