Sometimes Here At Night

June 20, 2016 at 5:19 pm (Dominic Alapat, Poetry)

the moon howls so loud

I cannot sleep

the buildings wake

to a sky so drained

of blood in her blue face

the stars scared

all run from place

and fall into the darkness

one by one

in this mad night

so angry

it just won’t let go

of this terrified time’s tail

I must lie here in bed blank

my open eyes so strained

I could burst

any moment

and die.
