The light faded
Behind dark blue clouds
Gilded by the sun,
The sky rumbled
And soft streams of misty
Light fell on streets
And sidewalks
In wobbling
Patches.

The earth stood still
And the trees were silent
And the atmosphere was heavy
And they waited for tomorrow,
For time was behind them
And love mingled with death
In a single pleasure.

They waited
As the rain gently fell
On the quiet earth,
And every night of love
Felt like it was their last
And it brought them
Closer to death,
And they never felt
More alive than
In that moment facing
Their mortality with
Rebellion.
