I’m sorry I couldn’t prevent night from falling.
That I failed to hold the sun in its place.
Would you believe me if I told you I tried?
My hands are seared from the burns.
My arms drained of their strength.
My will is shattered.
Night fell like a heavy blanket pulling the sun down.
And you and I with it.
But morning has returned.
And with it the light.
And all I want to know is, “did you survive the night”?
