what angel is this...









My city - Melbourne
photo by me...






Night-time

full of secrets stalking alleys,
waiting impetuously around every corner
to fulfill dark promises made as day slips into black.

Glaring street lights see into every naked nook,
every infidelity - every nasty deed

insidiously swallowing the day’s spent light

and yet,

innocent, your beauty transforms the very night
that keeps your secrets.


~~

Have the best weekend everyone. Aaaaaand for more 55's please visit G-Daddy at
Mr. Knowitall.


Love,

  9. Your words painted some wonderful images. Very mysterious and a little scary, till the last line, when the light shines. Good job.
