August Night

August Night

August night so tight and frozen

Whispers are but silent cries

Curious people tucked away

Listening for the stir of day

As august night slowly dies

I alone within my walls

Feeling bound and cold I write

Taken from the day’s slow toil

Weary bones dragged home to boil

To stare out blue august night

Wasted breaths fall hard and hollow

Echoes of my love and need

Darting shadows circles eyes

Losing all newborn lies

Haunting my black august bleed

August night blares blaze and glory

Bubblegum breeze shifts left to right

Air horns crack the thick silence

Reflecting a static august night

One more verse from here to freedom

Calling all of comfort’s plight

Children call from beds of sheer

Steady grip of safety near

Calming blue hearts this august night
