dusk is no time for tears

March 9, 2017

light slides down the walls
of purple and yellow,
mauve and mustard,
trickles through the lines
of faces,
settling around their
respective eyes,
his a little grateful
hers a little sad

dusk is no time for tears
too early to start too late to finish,
exchanges of laughter and looks
and tugging on the loose threads
of life in progress

the comforts of big questions and
small answers, and
personal practicalities like
what to do with the rest of the
descending evening

too early to start too late to finish,
and will the glances meet again
across the familiar room?

we must draw the curtain
on our young lovers for
dusk is no time for tears
dusk is the ripe hour of tantalising hopes
dusk is the ripe hour of tantalising hopes
