Glow in the Dark

(by Shaun Sykes)

DARKNESS FALLS
BUT BY ME WAITS
RISING GLOWS
ILLUMINATES.

ON THE GROUND
IN THE AIR
CAN'T YOU SEE IT
EVERYWHERE.

TURN THE LIGHTS DOWN
WATCH THE BEAM
RADIATE AS
IF I DREAM.

LOOK RIGHT THROUGH IT
PEER INSIDE
UNIQUE ADVENTURE
RUN AND HIDE.

NOT FROM EARTH
MOVES TO AND FRO
WIDE AWAKE
THIS EERIE GLOW.

CAN I CATCH IT?
SHOULD I YELL?
DEEP DECISIONS
SOON TO TELL.
