In The Night

rating: +1+x
Cloudy night murky moonlight
Gunshots haunt his dream these times
Corner it stood, draws no breath
Stare at the man, wait it tends.

Blinking light in empty hall
Night-shift nurse sipping her tea
Hiding shadows on white walls
Now stenched a dirty yellow.

The door, white walls, all in black
Blend in the night by this light
Eighteen smiles, merged together
Still can’t compare with just one.

War made Europe a huge mess
The houses, the streets, devastated
The tale of a young soldier
With memories, blurred away.

Midst of the night, all gone mute
Everything suddenly froze
A young poet was typing
Eyes stared behind, with none known.
