Night Lake

the half lit moon
looks up into
a black and empty
starless sky
a veil of clouds
can’t stop its light
spells doom
when passing by

yellow crests
on blue black waves
in a lifeless lake
cold to the eye
it truly is
the perfect night
the perfect way
to say goodbye

sweet world
sweet friends
I blame you not
for being
I’ll swim
I’ll sink
I’ll drown
and die
and then
– I’m sure –
you’ll care
