Plunge

Plunge

A Poem by Speak in Silence

Tonight the city sleeps
The night-line is obscure
The streets are vacant
No one knows the pain the city endures

On evenings like these
When the horizon meets the sea
While the cars are parallel with the universe
Tonight, no one will be the escapee

Tonight the streetlights have grown vague
Everyone will close their shades
The outside will go black
The city will be as a game of charades

Take your place,
Take cover
The city will be gone
No one will be able to recover

Tonight the sea will die
The wind will cease
But no one get confused
This plague is no peace

This city is different
Blessed with a curse
Fore every ten years
Most tourists leave in a hearse

Tonight this city will plunge out of the sky
The night will be silenced, no one will speak
All lights will refrain, all weather will conclude
Tonight this city will prove who are the weak

There's no where to run
No where to hide
No where is safe
Tonight no one's fear will subside

On nights like this, where no one knows
The uncertainty will engulf the sky
Because tonight I am part of the City of the Dead
Where no one's dreams are able to fly

Before reading your author's notes it was as if you were predicting the super storm that hit the east coast... or even so it could be the premise for an action movie. Nonetheless great work.
