Erstwhile Lovers

Written by: Vicky Tsiluma

creatures of the night
    the bats zoom in abandon 
        darkness cloaks their flight
            secret rendezvous’ arise
heartbreak marries morning light

mesmerizing sights
   the rhythmic beat of fireflies
       sunlight fades its light
           a love shrouded in darkness
drowns inside the marriage tide
