At Dusk

As darkness settles, the clouds roll in

Seemingly touching the ground

There is a calm stillness, a hush over city

As if we know the end is nearing

We are watching in wait for judgment

Something is different this time,

Something not quite right,

As if damnation is further off then we thought

Some kneel and pray

Other just stand hand in hand with their partners

We wait

For what seems like an eternity

We wait


We are all but shadows now

Mere memories to so many

Missed by even fewer

For all we did was wait at dusk

Hoping for a dawn

We wasted our lives waiting

Preparing for an end

Instead of rejoicing

Being grateful for all we have

Tomorrow stopped occurring

While we waited at dusk
