No Abyss

A Poem by Joshua L Stelling

Nightfall comes down

And the day does not forget

It fades

There is no abyss beyond the hill

Yet where I stand

Becomes darkness

What I saw

Turns to memory

The shivering leaves

Become shades

Ghosts embodied by the wind

Veins disappear

Your cheekbones become clear

Moreso in these shadows

Some things can be seen only in the darkness

Like the shimmering words

You spill

Curl like fairydust about the stars

Coming now down

As if there were no clouds

Some things cannot be seen in the darkness

Like the withering veins

Our age

It fades
