1

your room looks asleep
barely lit by the dying sun
i've never seen it like this before
so i stand there and watch

the last rays are running for shelter
the way you would if you
woke up naked one day
in the middle of a curious crowd

minutes go by and
i realise im smiling before
your wandering eyes find me
and invite me in

i enter and draw the curtains
desperate to give darkness the key
but you are sorry it ended this way
dusks reluctant romance with your room

i pour my tired body onto the bed
my troubled thoughts into oblivion
before i do something i have never done
lie

If I remember correctly, yesterday this had ended differently. Why the change? :)

Very nice my friend. Do you really know what it feels like to wake up naked to a curious crowd? Cool!

evokes a great picture of dusk ... and the exhaustion that comes at the end of the day when there is nothing left to do but trust in inertia

well written.

I am guessing this has a sequel? If not, I implore you to write one.
It seems interesting!
