NIGHT AND DEATH - TWINS
The suspense revives again.
Enlarges fear’s chances,
A silence appears slowly –
Slumber threatens the eyes,
(It is the pet junior of the darkness),
Subdues the faint and the ill…
The moon sighs for –
A piece of charity,
You will crumple easily.
Heartburn leads you on to the bed,
(Is it deliverance indeed?)
Is it taught to die eventually?
A night lasts long and is equal to dying.
