As the moon goes down
and the stars and owls come out
the towns people start to sleep
as they dream their last ever dreams.
Thou the wind is whistleing through the trees
as thou the bees stop their buzzing
an the birds stop their singing
as the dogs stopped their barking.
But only silence came passed us
so fast it stopped every last sound
However, if you listen carefully and patiently
you might hear your heart beat fast.
More so like cars racing on the streets
but, now ; just breathing normal or slow
that’s all you can hear from my ears
as the night passed us finally by.
I stayed up all night and I stayed alive
because, every last person who slept
took their last breath and died
this most dreadful night I survived.
