A Poem a Day 2015 (12): City sleepers

City sleepers

In between the spaces
Wander the abandoned
Strewn beneath the bleak
Stepping stones to the past

Waves of yearning sound
Tearing into the dark
Jagged screams cut silences
Upon the marked hand

Shadows dance, etched upon
The night owls take flight
Escaping the profound
Among the distant sleepers

Fingers dip to steal a coin
Taking breath for granted
Here it is just one leap
Into the maze
