Ask the Dusk

Slowly, sun begins to set,
Twilight’s colors igniting the sky

Light warily fading beneath horizon,
Not quite ready for goodbye

Patiently, I wait, for stars to shine,
Illuminating hungry eyes

As dark descends in silky silence,
Waking mortal souls once shy

Where, lying bare, to moon and you
I ask dusk to help me fly
