The light of day was waning
my heart was feeling cold
with the darkness gaining
loves story still untold


Lest I be caught in twilight
forever and a day
I must find ways to requite
the light that goes astray

So hungry is the corner dark
that does not get the beam
It yearns to see at least a spark
but sun witholds it's gleam

Then dark descends to cover all
light hasn't got a chance
til at some point the two must meet
to do a mating dance

When dance is over comes the fight
will stygian have its way
or will the force field of the light
be strong enough to sway

soon  time comes to illuminate
it appears clear and bright
yet still in corners adumbrate
a  shadow of the  night

Just when we think night has its way
Alas, the light has its day

etw

EXCELLENT, Eileen: perfect in concept, rhythm and metre and adroitly expressed. Twilight is, for certain sure, the most tactile of between-times in which all things are possible and lines are most definitely merged. So lovely to see you posting again - have been thinking of you! :)) xx

"Lest I be caught in twilight
forever and a day..."
is the nub of the matter, Eileen..
how that resonates, hits home!
The entire work strikes and charms at once.

surely the terminator is the offspring of this solar mating mystery of light and no light -- stygian losses are assured in the eternal battle -- Eileen you have teased me with this poem -- creative, interesting and an ending I adore -- "just when we think night has its way, alas, the light has its day", perfect! -- from the twilight I wish you love and peace my dear friend -- Jon Michael

It sounds like an urban warfare is already alive and well in Camden. But then, I've been around a few cities during my life and bad areas come and go like seasons in the wind. My dad used to talk about Cicero. When I was in San Francisco it was Little Five Points. There was Watts. There is always some place where you can get shot.

The nightfall and the twilight of dawn are indeed mysterious "places" to be in, Eileen. Thank you also for teaching me a new word, "adumbrate." Love and best wishes,

Regis

i wonder what're more mysterious, the day mating night or the night mating day? either way, they are both an inspired experience ... wonderful poem, ET ...

Haha! Whimsical and mysterious all at once, my friend.

"yet still in corners adumbrate
a shadow of the night"

Loved this very necessary two lines to this poem. Had to look up adumbrate. Like that word.
