Nightfall - Poem by Helgard du Preez
When thy gloaming nightfall sets ashore
Insomnia settles, elicited by gyrating ambivalences
Thy clock silently incites into a motionless tranquility
Cerebrations, idealizations, it forms my inner core.
Beatific intellections filter rather abruptly
Heterogeneous emotions leaping in a conoid mould
Steering me towards my ineluctable terminus
At last, it's time, time to reveal my inner fold.

Ontogenesis will mature into the incurable inevitable.
