Dark Rainy Night

In a dark rainy night
loneliness brings its shadow
to the kernel of the mind
mercilessly hitting the target
with the hammer of disguise

lingering thoughts fulfilling an empty heart
looking for something absent to remedy
that petty awareness of being there
in a shallow existence now or anywhere

A reason to exist is unknown
when the heart beats without the Lord
is surviving the routine of nine to five
for God’s sake my pet has a better life!

Wise words arrive and shine when the fake smile
is told good-bye,
for darkness always brings us closer to light
when honesty rises in the slumber of the night.
