What Happened In The Night

Poetry Wednesdays5

What happened in the night?
When the cars went screeching by
The silence came to a halt
But the night continued on
The darkness was still there
Despite the troubled scene
Looking through the cracks
I couldn’t see the source
People slept
People gathered
Noises came
Noises went
The night continued on

I couldn’t force myself to sleep
Trying to not hear the voices
The sirens screeching by
And the lights outside
The shadows were in the dark
As the night continued on
And the scene calmed
I heard the faint whispers
Move farther away
Lights came
Lights went
Shadows grew
Shadows shrank
The night continued on

What happened? I thought
As the dark become darker
Sleep resumed its course
Among the people all around
And the night continued on
There was a disturbance
But now its gone
The memories only remain
Night came
Night went
Darkness slowed
Darkness moved
The night came to an end
