In Came The Dawn Poem by Patrick O'Reilly

In Came The Dawn

Rating: 4.5

The sun came up without permission
To make me wonder which day it was.
The razor sunrise rips into my red eyes,
And I shut them fast and tight

Another night of standing vigilante
Over the sullen city street
In a bedroom window
Arms across the moulding in triumph over the dark
Curtains cast far aside,
Drained coffeecups littered with the laundry
Paper snowballs with three hour's futile produce
Cornered in with the other cobwebs

Insomnia, that old ghost, promises
Today will be a beautiful night

Meghan - 27 July 2006

'today will be a beautiful night' I love this line! Great poem. Meghan
