Monsters

Silhouettes at the start of the night
Turn into shadows and monsters
Whilst the evening continues
Shades of grey against the blue
Before shadows and monsters
Turn into you

And the brightness of the world backs down
And gives into the darkness and the moon
And while our eyes are diverted by light
We see the people kissing
Far too soon

Mutters of words and shouts in a different tongue
Leave me alone
Leave me stunned
By the beauty in the things unknown
By the beauty of you .

Don’t end your day too soon
Continue through the night
Find your calling

Strained in shrieks of laughter
Shrieks of pain
And the world will be…
While again in the world of the monster
