Dream: Endless night

Never-ending nightI don’t want to lose you
You don’t want to lose me
Life does not listen to these promises whispered among the sighs
From your eyes that have the colors of the rainbow come flashes of hate
From my heart fall down black mourning streams of tears for all the regrets
And desperate we run in this endless night
London or Paris
Milan or New York
But no destination is plausible
What remain are only old postcards and some ghosts,
between the desperate housewife and the man of the preposterous self-portraits
Rivers of wine, clouds of smoke and a lightning
fall over the bed with no dreams
in this endless night
_Hugh S. Graves_
