The bare night

I leaned from the balcony,

into the open sky

my eyes took in the dusty night

that was dotted with faraway lights

something was amiss i thought out loud

the stars are there and so is the moon

and the wind is still howling like a loon

then why does it feel so empty and devoid

maybe ’tis my heart searching for something to fill its own void

a veil of dust is spread across, it has stolen the starry light

and left the night bare to moan in its own skies.
