Things that go into the dark

The things that go into the dark,

Take a piece of the sun in their eyes,

Leave us with a fading twilight.

 

They pad in and out of our lives,

In their wake ripples music so bright,

The things that go into the dark.

 

Soft moments of calm in their warmth,

They leave a place cold as the moon,

Take a piece of the sun in their eyes.

 

Garlands of stars light their way, they

Cross rainbows that bridge here and there,

Leave us with a fading twilight.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. Little boy cats in my experience have been more inclined to sit on laps than the girls. Trixie only ever gets on a lap on the way up to sitting on the computer keyboard.
