a little sunshine

implications of nightfall creep in the broken window i sit leaning against the graffiti strewn wall the city lights spread out below me like a carpet over the rolling hills spiderweb of streetlights leads the mind on a merry chase all those homes down there each containing love and warmth all those places in the heart known as safe an appealing silence haunts this place leaves the listener with images of all that has transpired here illustrates the meanings of the scrawled words on the wall before me two lovers had been here and left behind a casual love note spraypainted in a hue of green tepid words of a quickly lived love affair a passing summer romance now abandon in the chill fall air i can picture the girl lingering here in a sullen twilight retracing her past wishing there are abandon places in our world where abandon people linger places where they can let down the pretty face defense where they can set aside the mask and perchance to hope a little sunshine will grace them for even a moment will give them a way to go on
