Poem: Loud and Silent

The night is thick
The air now dark
Black bridge towers
Stand up
Looming in darkness
Black against the gray of night sky
A few raindrops
Amount to no storm

The good vibe
Quickly unsettled
As those that come rolling
Suddenly add tension
Interrupting flow
Uneasy, yet unyielding
I try to have empathy
Not bitter but better
Madness and fever
Runs through the ranks
Greatness awaiting
But when?

As all slowly fade
Only the few left
This space suddenly quiet
Pretty girl with pencil
Then it makes sense
What I’m doing here
